Description

While searching for usable font and failing, the set_font() function will fall back to default font (Gallant 19). This default is quite OK for historical Sun Workstations, which generally had large displays, but can be quite unusable with more rare cases. The defect is visible on low resolution (small) displays.

Instead of the current default font, which is quite large, we should fall back to the smallest available font.
