Not that I know.

Yes, the last number of the first line.

As I mentioned -font-face and -font-weight produce the effect I expected -- that is, they change the face and weight of all patches opened after Pd starts up -- but not -font-size.  If what you say is the case (sorry haven't been able to test it yet) isn't this a bit inconsistent with the functioning of the other font control flags?
IMO is not inconsistent as "-font-face" and "-font-weight" are "general" 
and are not saved in the patch. OTOH "-font-size" is saved in the patch.
