6x13 is a semicondensed face, so you'll have to make sure you request it 
by setting the width to semicondensed instead of normal.  You can do this 
in your .fonts.conf with:

        <match target="pattern">
		<!-- match family "fixed" -->
                <test name="family">
		<!-- make sure width wasn't specified -->
                <test name="width" qual="all">
		<!-- set the width to semicondensed to prefer 6x13 -->
                <edit name="width">
