I don't know VM, and I don't even know by what means you can select a  
font specifically for those buffers without Autoface mode unless VM  
does that somehow.

Generally, if `default-frame-alist' and the `default' face are  
consistent, autoface and the old `aquamacs-styles-mode' are off, then  
there is no reason why another font would be chosen.
Check `face-remapping-alist' as well, perhaps.  Autoface has some  
timers that detect "naughty" (incorrectly implemented) major modes.   
But if it is turned off (with (autoface-mode 0) for instance) then the  
timers will be cancelled.

If you suspect a bug, then we will need a minimal test case to  
investigate (without third-party packages like VM if possible).  Or  
perhaps somebody else who knows VM can contribute some ideas.
