Well, I'm using emacs23 too(emacs-snapshot debian package, I believe it's
the CVS snapshot), and this solution still works for me. So, just re-check
if you're not changing any fonts in your ~/.emacs
(Actually, the problem here is that if you re-define your fonts in ~/.emacs,
then emacs will start with default(or defined in .Xresources/.Xdefaults)
fonts and only then fonts will be changed to the ones defined in dot-emacs
file and that drives emacs crazy in tiled WMs)

Again, first do not change any font settings in ~/.emacs, and then check if
there will be any success
