switching from emacs to xemacs

after years using emacs, I finally started to switch to xemacs. Some
things don't work as expected though:

1. Starting an inferior-scheme (guile) process leaves me with a buffer
   showing the right prompt, but no connection to the process (typing an
   expression and hitting return doesn't show any result from the scheme
   process). I tried the follwing lines in my .xemacs/init.el to no

      (setq scheme-program-name 
      "guile -l /usr/local/share/guile/site/guileinit.scm")

      (setq inferior-scheme-program 
      "guile -l /usr/local/share/guile/site/guileinit.scm")

   The guile command works in an xterm and using the old emacs without

   If I issue 

      M-x run-ilisp <return>Dialect: guile<return>

   it works. But I have to load my init file and don't want to do that
   by hand.

2. Trying to change the Menubar Font under X fails. I edited my
   .Xresources and tried with all of the following lines, found in
   different helps, faqs, etc. on this subject in the web. All of them
   don't work:*.fontList: -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
   Emacs.pane.menubar.*.fontList: 6x10
   Emacs.pane.menubar*font: -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
-adobe-times-medium-r-normal--11-80-100-100-p-*-iso10646-1*.font:  -adobe-times-medium-r-normal--11-80-100-100-p-*-iso10646-1
   xemacs.pane.menubar.*.font: -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
   Emacs.pane.menubar.*.fontList:  8x16
   Emacs*menubar*fontList: 6x10
   xemacs.pane.menubar.*.fontList: 6x10
   Emacs.paneFont: -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
   Emacs*menubar*Font:          -*-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-*-120-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*
   Emacs*menubar.font:  -*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

   This one works immediately, so I think I'm editing the right file:

   Emacs*menubar*foreground:       Black
   Emacs*menubar*background:       gray90

I'm using xemacs 21.4.13, debian distro with lucid interface:

address@hidden:~$ emacs --version


XEmacs 21.4 (patch 13) "Rational FORTRAN" [Lucid] (i386-debian-linux, Mule) of 
Sun Jul 20 2003 on eeyore

BTW: There is no /etc/X11/app-defaults/[xX]*[eE]macs on my system.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
