> I'm seeing the same problems with tiny fonts a moment after login,

This is just GNOME lazy-reading GConf preferences and drawing text before
noticing the user font preferences are not the same as the system font
preferences. You can verify it by creating a new user (that will have every
parameter reset to defaults) and test if the text size switch occurs.

If that is the case you can open a bug @upstream GNOME (gnome-session) to ask it
reads font preferences before drawing text (not after). But that's an old
problem I've also seen in pre-F8 releases.
