Yeah, i had done that already, and i can choose the 'Fixed' font from the
gnome(-terminal) fontselector, it just doesn't look the same.

To show what i mean i've made the following screenshot:


On the top left is a stock default xterm (using fixed by default). top
middle is gnome-terminal using fontconfig fixed size 9 (too small), top
right  is gnome-terminal fixed size 11 (too big), and on the bottom it's 
fixed size 10.

So how do i get fontconfig to dish out something that is identical to the
section on the top left?
