the  -5Adobe-courier-r-normal***120***** looks strange.

you can change that to any other font, the correct name
can be found by using xfontsel or xlsfonts.

To make your programm happy you can try the
default shortcut "fixed". To check that your font description
is used try something exotic like "tekfont3"
(eg.: xfontsel -fn tekfont3)

happy hacking,
