ok, I used fdesign as a test-case, and while font-sizes varied with
different fonts available (the aforementioned -75dpi or -100dpi or
neither), the layout still worked.  So, I'd venture that perhaps this
may be application bug(s) wrt making assumptions about font dpi.

No, my application (wrote myself) doesn't do *any* explicit font
selection.  It just uses the
   standard "small medium large" abstraction offered by the toolkit.

Same application on F9 and F10 rendered *on the same computer*
correctly.   After upgrade to
   F11 it wouldn't render properly, and the same behaviour showed up in F12.

Just because you didn't see any bugs before doesn't mean they didn't exist. My theory is things look better if 'xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi' is installed, bad if they are not.

Can you try installing that, and see if it helps?
