I've actually had this happen on Neo Freerunner (an embedded platform)
during changes in screen orientation. As it turned out, what happened
was that the DPI reported by the X.org server would get wrong values.
So my guess is that something similar is happening here as well.

Try looking at the output of the xdpyinfo utility before and after

There was an option or something for specifying DPI as well, iirc
(maybe in .gtkrc-2.0 or even for the xrdb utility). Can't recall
right now what it was that I used to "fix this" on Neo.
