You are so damn right - this was at least a solution for KDE 3.1.4
I had -dpi 75 in /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc, but 100dpi in xserverrc.
Now i changed (still KDE 3.1.4) all to 100 dpi and started X
-> Fonts are ugly like on screenshots (the right side). In this 100dpi
mode Helvetica [Adobe] in 9pt is too big and 8pt to small. So i
changed all to 75dpi and now all is fine. Of couse i had increase font
heights about 3pt (9pt>12pt) so in 75dpi mode now all looks like on
the left screenshots but with pt set to 12/11 instead 9/8.

I will now upgrade to KDE 3.2.0 again and let you know if this solved
my font issues.

... who knows there are 2 config files for dpi settings ... *damn*
