| Hi,
| 
| I've updated my system to the latest package versions and I use
| Cygwin x86_64 on top of Windows 10. Unfortunately, I get some
| warnings when a start "xterm".
| 
| hermes fd1026_2 40 xlsfonts | grep --
| "-misc-fixed-bold-r-normal--15-140-75-75-c-90-iso10646-1"
| -misc-fixed-bold-r-normal--15-140-75-75-c-90-iso10646-1
| 
| hermes fd1026_2 41 xterm -fn
| '-misc-fixed-bold-r-normal--15-140-75-75-c-90-iso10646-1'
| xterm: cannot load font
| "-Misc-Fixed-medium-R-*-*-15-140-75-75-C-180-ISO10646-1"
| xterm: cannot load font
| "-Misc-Fixed-bold-R-*-*-15-140-75-75-C-180-ISO10646-1"
| 
| hermes fd1026_2 42 xterm
| xterm: cannot load font
| "-Misc-Fixed-medium-R-*-*-15-140-75-75-C-180-ISO10646-1"
| xterm: cannot load font
| "-Misc-Fixed-bold-R-*-*-15-140-75-75-C-180-ISO10646-1"
| xterm: cannot load font
| "-Misc-Fixed-bold-R-*-*-13-120-75-75-C-120-ISO10646-1"
| 
| Does anybody know why the 11th field will be automatically switched from
| "90" to "180"? Is it possible to avoid the warning? Thank you very much for
| any help in advance.

It's a misleading warning (xterm was marking it internally as a problem, but
when I reorganized things the "internal" status was lost - will fix in the next
update).  You can stifle the warning by setting the fontWarnings resource to 0,
as shown in the manual:
