~/.Xdefaults only gets read if there are no resources set on the
screen; it's not merged, it's just read as a fallback. The
gnome-font-properties / gnome-settings-daemon probably now includes
the Red Hat 8 changes to set various Xft resources based on GConf

Basically the solution here is to use ~/.Xresources rather than
~/.Xdefaults. ~/.Xdefaults just doesn't work reliably if something
needs to set resources programmatically.
