emacs21: some font strings that worked in 21.3 do not work in 21.4

Package: emacs21
Version: 21.4a-1ubuntu1
Severity: important

I'm running Ubuntu, but I have tried the 21.4a-3 package which is
currently in unstable at time of writing and find the same problem.

I use a X11 font string of:

 "-bitstream-bitstream vera sans mono-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-125-m-0-*-*"

(with the ttf-bitstream-vera package installed, of course)

This works fine with Emacs 21.3, but fails with 21.4.  It gives small
boxes for each letter as if it cannot render the font.
