    You have two options: (1) restore "-dpi 100" in Xservers, so that
    you'll have the same as you had before upgrading [note that you'll
    have to change back your KDE fonts]; (2) stay in 75, 75 (which is
    what XFree detects is appropiate for your card, I think/it seems)
    and change/tweak *once* the font-size for GTK apps, just as you did
    in KDE.
