I also had this problem. Oddly, I encountered it about the same time as you.
Small world :).
As an alternative to Daniel's fix you can pass the option "-dpi 100" to X when
starting the server (where you start X might be different based on distribution
and display manager... on my debian system with gdm it was in
/etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf). Both methods work, but my way you avoid doing the
trivial math you'd need to do to compute the DisplaySize options :)
