i'd expect the font to be the same size regardless of dpi, but it
would look really bad at the low dpi setting,  rather than being

i looked in gdmsetup and couldn't find a setting for this.  where
should i be looking?

i found that the reason that the xfce font is always the same size
using startx is because the dpi is always set to 100x100.  i'm not
sure which startx script or config file does this.

maybe '-dpi 100' should be automatically set in gdm.conf?  this would
be a question for the gdm maintainer.
