There was a discussion about dpi here a couple of weeks ago.  Since
then, I've taken to adding a DisplaySize directive to each of my Monitor
sections.  On my laptop, which is often docked at different stations
with different monitors running at different resolutions, etc., this
enables X to know how many pixels per point I'm using, and it knows how
tall to draw a 12 point font to make it 12 points (1/6 of an inch) tall.
This way, switching to monitors at different resolutions doesn't mean my
fonts shrink and grow; it means my desktop area does instead.

This is probably not be a complete answer to your troubles, but maybe
searching the archives for that thread (sorry, don't remember the
Subject) will help.

Also, what does the Files section of your XF86Config-4 look like?
