You probably got bitten by the "xinit starts X11 in 100 dpi" and/or
"kdm starts X with 100 dpi". There are debconf info screens telling you
Depending on which method you use to start X11, edit
/etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc or some file in /etc/X11/kdm/ (i think it's
Xserver_0) and remove the "-dpi 100" switch.
