I am not familiar with all the technical issues of pixel size and DPI.
I would suggest to check the DPI settings (System/Preferences/Fonts/Details...).

In addition, verify that the monitor gives the correct EDID data.
If you use Ubuntu, there is a read-edid package. It's a command line tool.
EDID is information that your computer can retrieve from the monitor
(VGA, HDMI at least)
using the graphics card. The X server can do that do, so you may find
the info in /etc/X11/Xorg.0.log as well.

If you indeed verify that the problem is with the software, then I
would suggest you can find a report (enhancement)
for the 'gtk+' product, at
