I am using debian wheezy with xfce4. With some applications I am experiencing a weird phenomena: The menu panel sometimes has a very tiny font (see Picture). This doesn't happen every time and only with some applications. I noticed it with git gui and ocular. Why is this happening and what can I do about it?

Note the tiny font of the menu compared with the window title (arrows)


I think I found the solution on my own - maybe it will be useful for somebody: I played around with the "Appearance" in the "Settings" menu. In the "fonts" tab there is a "Use custom DPI value" checkbox. Checking this sets the fontsize to the preferred value. (I hope I translated the menu options correctly from my german menu)
