You talk about *4* fonts. In a usual system, you have about 400 and more at
hand. It's no fun to build the font metrics for that many fonts any time X is
started. That's why there is a disk cache which is updated only on font
So here's a picture of reality: (picture of circle with lots of sqiggles
in it) As we all know, reality is a mess.
