Well, maybe there's another place where gnome sets the DPI. I don't
know, I don't use it.

Maybe you should ask a gnome maintainer.

If you change dpi settings it *must* change the font size. If it
doesn't, you found a bug.

In gnome and Xfce, can you do:
xdpyinfo | grep Resolution

and paste the output?

You can also set dpi with xrandr (only for next started applications).
