How can I get this fixed?  If I knew what source code lines to hack
on, I could do it, but I am way too busy to learn now.  I am happy to
test patches that anyone sends me.

Gnumeric stores things as pts.  However, it defaults to using 96 dpi
for the display, which is what XL appears to do.  You can edit the
settings in the prefs dialog.  When the code was written most X
servers got the dpi measurements wrong, we should probably add a
setting to trust them now.

The pref dialog does not have these settings anymore. (REcall that you
requested not to include those internal settings.) One now has to use
the gconf-editor to change them.

True, but 1.2.x still has them.
For 1.3.x I'd like to add a way to 'use monitor dpi'
a clear plan.  Possible via dpi < 0 or potentially another flag.
