Okay. I've found a clue to my problem. I'm on a kde system, and I'm
obtaining a list of "valid" fonts with the xlsfonts command. I don't
know much about how the kde gui works, bit it appears that the xlsfonts
command and kde are incompatible. Now to figure out how to get a list of
kde fonts.....

Subject: I can't change the font in vim7.1!

I just upgraded to 7.1, and now when I open up a gvim session, I get
this huge monospaced font that I can't change. If I type:

:set guifont?

it returns "7x14" which is what I set it to, but it isn't what is
displayed. If I change the setting to *any* other font that is valid for
my system, the display doesn't change, although the guifont setting
shows that it is set to the new value.
