Yes it's probably related to Pango.

Yes, it ends up in custom:

(custom-set-typed-variable (quote default-frame-style) (quote BeOSII)
(quote frame-style))
(custom-set-typed-variable (quote default-font) (quote ("Pango" . "Fixed 8")) (quote font))

The sample text in sawfish-ui looks right, it's just that is does seem
to be used as the default font. All menus in Firefox, acroread,
sawfish-ui, etc. are huge Helvetica style fonts.
