Well that seems easy enough, but the result is confusing.

First, I hand-edited my custom.el to delete the old customization.
I then did as you say using customize-face, and saved the customization.

Comparing the new custom.el with the original, I found they were
identical (!), so I guess I never had a problem in the first place - I was
just confused by the message into *thinking* I had.

Anyway, thanks for clearing things up.
