I am running Gentoo and the Gnome system is at v2.10.
I have not been able to find an application called,
"gnome-settings-daemon".  I am guessing you are using
an earlier Gnome or the Gentoo folks have rewired my
Gnome somehow.  BTW, I boot my system into run-level 3
and start X11 by hand.  I am running Xfce4, v4.2.2.


In any event, I have not yet been able to understand
how your advice and experience relates to my system,
but I'm still working on it.

This problem does not exist with AbiWord.  I can type
a multi-line paragraph into it and the Preview is
identical to screen version.  The only application
I see this problem with is Gnumeric.  OpenOffice is
fine also.

BWT, I have tried many fonts, both common and obscure.
The problem is consistent.  I'm beginning to think it
is a Gnumeric thing and not the fault of the Gnome

gnumeric use generally 96 dpi for screen resolution and 72 dpi for
printing (the value used in gnome-print).
