Description of problem:
Meera font has a scaling property defined in
/etc/fonts/conf.d/90-smc-fonts.conf file. It has a 1.2 times size scaling. But
in Fedora 11 this scaling is not working properly. When Meera font is selected
with size say, 12 for the applications, window titles etc, the entire desktop
get ugly with expanded and overlapped titlebars or strings in application.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open abiword, type two words(english/malayalam), set the font of first word
as Meera 12, second as Rachana 12 and compare the size. Meera font is bigger
than Rachana font


2. System->Preferences->Appearance->Fonts, , select the fonts for all types as
Meera 12. Select theme as Clearlooks. See the panel width, window title width,
the big close buttons etc. Repeat the same with Rachana 12 and see the

Actual results:
Meera font size is big and takes more spaces in application making the
application look bad

Expected results:
Setting font size 12 should set the size as 12 and the size should be same as
other fonts with same size.
