I have nedit running fine under xfree86 4.0.3 but under 4.1.0 the
menu font is broken (I get the grey square glyph)

I've been throught the xfree site and this problem is described as
being due to under specified font or not being able to render fonts
woth unicode extensions

Other font work fine its just the menu (netscape displys the
same problem)

    I think Mark indicated some knowledge about this problem.

    Please try this, and let me know if it helps. It sounds
    like we might be getting the wrong encoding.

    nedit -xrm '*fontList:
    -adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1'

    No but

    nedit -xrm
    '*fontList:-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-
    1'

    doesn't fix the problem but

    nedit -xrm
    'nedit*fontList:-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-
    1'

    does so does

    nedit -xrm
    'nedit*fontList:-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-*'

    though

    Please see comment added to bug #485591.

    I checked out the source from CVS, in particular with the
    file "nedit.c,v 1.30 2002/02/08 23:26:26" and the problem
    is now fixed for Red Hat 7.2. Both the menu font and
    the font used within the scrollboxes of the file dialogues
    are now displayed correctly.
