Font problem with xft

A while ago I setup Emacs on my PC for ttf fonts and it works
fine. Yesterday I did the same with my notebook. If I start it with

emacsclient -c -a ""

the startup breaks with this message:

*ERROR*: Font `-adobe-Helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-*-100-*-*-*-*-iso8859-15' is 
not defined

No client shows up. If I start emacs the ordinary way, it starts but I
get the error message in the mini buffer and no ttf fonts.

The strange thing is both systems have the same setup. It is a current
version of Debian/sid and the emacs configuration is syncronized via
unison. The xft config is in my .Xdefaults and looks this way:

Emacs.FontBackend: xft
Emacs.font: DejaVu Sans Mono-11

The fonts are definatly installed and I don't have any font setting in
my emacs config. I found older bug reports with a similar problem, but
it seemed to be fixed. It's also strange that it complains about a non
ttf font. Has anybody a clue what to do?

Thanks in advance
