Bug#307158: [patch] Set default font when using 'set guifont=*'

As described below, if the user hasn't yet set 'guifont' the font
selection dialog will not have the default font selected which leads to
confusing behavior.

The attached patch addresses the first problem Andreas describes, but I
don't see a way to address the second problem.  The GTK developers
“helpfully” removed the ability to set a filter on the fonts that can be
selected when they changed from GTK1 to GTK2.
