[Yeah, that's probably the case, but I think Stephan would also like a
fix to this situation.]

Stephan: There should be a file /etc/X11/gdm/Xservers with a line
resembling the following.

	:0 local /usr/bin/X11/X vt7 -deferglyphs 16 -dpi 100

Be sure that the value after -dpi reads 100.

This assumes that startx actually starts with 100dpi.  You can verify
that by looking at the file /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc.  There should be a
line like

	exec /usr/bin/X11/X -dpi 100 -nolisten tcp $*

Note, again the -dpi 100.
