Default Huge fonts: X / KDE may be ignoring DisplaySize

I use up-to-date Debian unstable, amd64 port, on my pc. I use KDE. The
monitor is an Acer AL2016W. The graphics board is an nVidia GeForce FX 5500.
I usually do not reboot after running synaptic to update my system.

When I rebooted on 2/6, I found that much of the text in KDE was in huge
fonts. X or KDE seemed to be ignoring the DisplaySize command in xorg.conf.
I found two threads in in the debian-x mailing list for Jan 08 that may be
relevant. The first is "Bug#461501: xserver-xorg-core: dpi set to 96 inspite
of DisplaySize option". The second is "Bug#461457: xorg: Doesn't honour
DisplaySize".

What should I do to fix my problem?

Here are parts of Xorg.0.log and xorg.conf:

/var/log/Xorg.0.log:

(**) NV(0): Display dimensions: (430, 270) mm
(**) NV(0): DPI set to (148, 216)

/etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "AL2016W"
Option "DPMS"
DisplaySize 430 270
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500]"
Monitor "AL2016W"
DefaultDepth 24
...
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1680x1050" "1280x1024" "1152x864"
"1024x768" "800x600" "720x400" "640x480"

Did you read through?

Seems to be the same as my problem (as described in bug #461501).

Try running 'grep AL2016W /var/log/Xorg.0.log' and see if you get
something like:

Output XXX using monitor section AL2016W

It will probably be the wrong output. To get it right change the
identifier in your "Monitor" Section to the output name or so. See
http://wiki.debian.org/XStrikeForce/HowToRandR12 for details.

Regards,
Andrei
