Re: Sticky fonts

In System 79.26, ZMail 40.7, Remote-File 2.0, LMFILE-Remote 5.3,
Programmer's Apprentice 21.9, microcode 849, PA 21.7, on Lisp Machine Twenty-two:

Odd. I was in a buffer which had

  ;;; -*- Mode:LISP; Package:KBE; Base:10; Fonts:MEDFNB; -*-

for its file property list and which was being properly displayed
in MEDFNB. I then read a file into another buffer which had

  ;;; -*- Mode:TEXT; Fonts:CPTFONT; -*-

for its file property list. When I switched back to the first buffer,
I was in CPTFONT instead of MEDFNB. I had to do M-X Reparse Mode Line
to get things back to normal. Now switching buffers between those two
no longer causes that problem.

On a related issue, I think that once a buffer is displayed in a given 
font, it should remember that font and not change it unless asked to do 
so. It is too confusing/annoying to have fonts be sticky from buffer 
in the way they currently are.
