I actually had a similar problem with the fonts in many Gtk
and Gtk+ applications, so I changed the DPI value for the
whole X system by defining
Option "DPI" "96 x 96"
in Section "Device" for your graphics card.
You can also let X determine the DPI value automatically
DisplaySize 410 305
in Section "Monitor" for your monitor; units are in mm.
To try which resolution fits best, you can use the followng
% xinit -- -dpi 72
% xinit -- -dpi 75
% xinit -- -dpi 96
% xinit -- -dpi 100
% xinit -- -dpi 115
If you're using a LCD panel, it should be obvious and match
the real hardware parameters.
