That's a feature, not a bug... Xft provides a best-fit matching scheme so
that any font patten provided will match *something*. It may be that the
patterns you're building are either too-specific, or not-specific enough.
In the first case, Xft will select a font which matches all of the
requirements but may otherwise not be what you want.
If you describe what patterns you're building, we can see what should be
added or removed to make matches more sensible.
