Yes it's the real solution.  Themes are designed to be viewed at
standard viewing distances on a 27inch display with and 800x600
display running at 100dpi.  So unless your display is at 100dpi
nothing is going to look like it should regardless of the
small/medium/large fonts.  it's not a "hack" is a properly configured
Myth box.
