Initial font size issue.


When I specify a font by point size (I'm using "Inconsolata:size=12"),
characters that are substituted from another font because they are not in the
main one appear too small.  Doing a zoom reset fixes it.  For example:


I found that adding the pixel size (acquired from the initial font load) to the
pattern then reloading the font fixes the problem.  I'm not sure if this is a
proper fix, though.
