No, we can't say that until we've a) verified that your display-related
settings are correct or (better) b) had independent confirmation from a
number of other users.

I /will/ say, however, that all of the themes in SVN's mythtv,
myththemes, themes, and even oldthemes directories are "good" (enough,
in the case of the legacy ones that should die)--I know as I've tested
them.  So, unless you're using a 3rd-party theme, the theme's not the
problem.  (And the problem /could/ in fact be your eyes--meaning you
have a different artistic idea of how big the fonts should be from the
author of the theme.)

They're for removal.

(They apply only to the non-themed Qt widgets--basically the setup pages
and a couple of dialogs, such as the "Do you really want to exit?" dialog.)
