GTK+ Red Hat's David Zeuthen blogged today about the huge patch he submitted to GTK+ that will allow the toolkit to achieve resolution independence - widget and font size adapting to your screen's real estate; no more tiny application lost in the corner of your high resolution screen. Although more work is obviously required, Zeuthen's idea is to use RI as the hot-new-feature selling point of the upcoming 3.0 GTK+ release. Discussion is going on in the gtk-devel mailing list and there is an ogg video of the feature in action.

i run at 1440x900 on a 17" widescreen monitor which is a higher resolution for a smaller monitor, and I have no problems whatsoever with font size on XP, Vista, or Linux with the default settings. As the original poster said, something is very wrong with your settings.
