Bug#509898: gnome: Preferences - Appearance changes font/DPI setting?

Package: gnome
Version: 1:2.22.2~5
Severity: normal


My resolution was 800 x 600. I increased it to 1152 x 864. Then I opened the Appearance window.
At that point, the font at the desktop increased in size, almost like the DPI was changed.
