Hi Bill, thank you for being so helpful, I really appreciate this a lot.

I tried this just now, and the font problem seems to have magically fixed
itself. The only thing I can think of that could have caused this was that
earlier today I changed my login manager from gdm to kdm, which seemed to
mess up my fonts in kde by making them too big, so I played around with them
for a bit before changing back to gdm so I could have them how I wanted.
Something in this process must have sorted the snd fonts problem out.

In case it helps, if I type "(show-minibuffer-font)" in the listener, I get

bold_button_font: Times Bold

Incidentally, now that it's working, is there a way to make the fonts bigger?
(I run a really high-res display)

Anyway, time to get back to learning how to use snd :)
