Hello Christopher,

as I am experimenting with Kolab using a few newly created users I find 
that these new font defaults are really rather small on my IBM ThinkPad 
T23 with 14 inch display. 

This is what xdpyinfo gives me:

version number:    11.0
vendor string:    The X.Org Foundation
vendor release number:    60802000
X.Org version: 6.8.2

screen #0:
  print screen:    no
  dimensions:    1024x768 pixels (347x260 millimeters)
  resolution:    75x75 dots per inch
