Description Ville Skyttä 2006-03-05 19:29:14 UTC
Reported here per Mike Harris' request, more info including links to strace
ltrace outputs at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/180284

When starting up xfontsel or xemacs in a en_US.UTF-8 setup, it takes about 3
seconds during which the CPU load is 100% and eventually loads with the warning:
"Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion" output on the
console.  I'm guessing during the load it's doing something with the font
server.  Starting it without UTF-8 (LANG=en_US xfontsel) brings it up
immediately without warnings.

This is Fedora Core 5 test 3.

I can no longer reproduce this with FC5 final, assuming fixed.
