Well, I'd accept a behaviour change if it used the X server settings
instead of fishing values from somewhere unknown.

It's kind of sad that the Gnome project chooses to piss off a great part
of its users every release for stuff no one really cares about (except
could we have some behaviour stability please) but all its grand plans
still do not seem to include a working font setup.
I've seen the future desktop demos and I'm ready to accept tiger strips
will change my life, but could we fix core stuff like font size before ?
You know, the thing text consoles got right 30 years ago. I don't care
if it works in 80% of the cases, I still spend most of my computer time
reading text so 80% is not bloody good enough.
That being said I'll go back to bed nurse my fever. Hope you find this
