Description Joe Bayes 2001-10-25 15:34:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.10 i686)

Description of problem:
When I have rxvt-2.7.5-15 installed, it uses a 7x14 font (as specified in
my .Xdefaults with the line *font:7x14). When I install
rxvt-2.7.6-4.i386.rpm, it uses a larger font (8x16, perhaps?). 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rxvt-2.7.6-4
2. type "rxvt" at a command line. 
3. Notice the large font that won't let me fit 160 columns on a screen

Actual Results:  rxvt popped up, with a big font.

Expected Results:  rxvt should have popped up with a 7x14 font, as
specified in my .Xdefaults file with the line *font:7x14
