the point i was making there is that gnome ignores the dpi setting set
there, and always uses 100 dpi.  maybe xfce should do the same?

i still think this is a bug.  why does gnome behave differently than
xfce?  for example, if dpi is set to 50 in gdm, xfce will have a
really small font, but gnome will still have a normal-sized font (and
it will still say it used a 50x50 dpi resolution in
