Check the DPI setting.  It used to be hardcoded at 96 DPI in Gnome,
but with the current upstream release it is now determined from your
monotor size (and/or some other data).  Open System -> Preferences ->
Look and Feel -> Appearance.  Then, on the Fonts tab, select the
Details button and check/adjust the resolution and see if that helps.
