Just guessing here, but I've seen this kind of behaviour with GTK apps
before. The reason was that a different configuration file (gtkrc) was
used depending on the locale (or more exactly, depending on the encoding
in use). And said file includes info on which font should be used.

So, different enconding -> different default font in the gtkrc
different default font -> different size for the actual font used,
depending on which fonts are installed, esp. which UTF-8 encoded fonts
are installed.
