Ok, another lead. Iirc the font settings (in Settings/Appearance) aren't
applied directly to xfdesktop fonts. So maybe xfdesktop only picks the
fonts from the system (Xsettings or xfconf, I'm not sure) when it
starts, and not after (unless you uncheck the *checked*
”use-custom-font” setting). In your case, maybe there's a race condition
or something, and when xfdesktop starts the font size is not yet defined
and it continue using its default font size instead of your configured
font size.

I'll try to dig that this afternoon.
