Indeed. Sorry...

The "set-face-attribute" is the only font related thing in my setups...

Thanks for this hint! I've found the reason for the problem.
In the file /usr/share/X11/app-defaults/Emacs there is this line:
"Emacs.FontBackend:      xft,x"

After removing the whole file, it works well (ftcrhb is used).

It seems, that this file has been added by the package maintainer, so I
will contact him (openSUSE).

Kind regards,
