According to Stephan the scaling factor has to be applied because the
DPI XSETTING has to be in pango whatever units. It was just applied too
early (in the appearance settings) and was thus passed to xrdb in a
wrong way. *That* should be fixed.

Ha, true. I don't know if -1 will work with pango either though.
