we upgraded Emacs in Fedora 11 and 12 to 23.1, but users start complaining,
that the font is too large.

this is a screenshot from cleanly installed Fedora 12 Alpha, showing
the default font:


do you know, what can be done to obtain the same
font size as before? This is a screenshot from Fedora 10:


the bug report implies that the problem here is that emacs is scaling the 
requested font size according to
the display resolution reported by Xorg. These are accurate for the dimensions 
of the screen, but that
doesn't mean emacs should use them to change the font sizes the user requested:
see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=517272#c3

thank you for your ideas,
