Yes

When I press `C-h k M-g u' being in my Inferior Lisp buffer, I get

M-g u runs the command facemenu-set-underline
   which is an interactive Lisp function.
(facemenu-set-underline)

Select face `underline' for subsequent insertion.

In fact, pressing M-g in the Inferior Lisp buffer asks me which face I want, so
I press `b' for bold, for example, but then nothing happens - not a beep, no
message in *Messages*, simply nothing.

If I switch to fundamental mode or text mode, set the face of the text (this
works), and switch back to Inferior Lisp mode afterwards, the boldface (or
whatever) disappears immediately.

Very strange
