The following code also doesn't work, I get the same large font
for my GtkScrollLabel that my previously attached screenshot showed:

  label->cairo = cairo_create (label->surface);
  pango_cairo_update_context(label->cairo, gtk_widget_get_pango_context
  label->layout = pango_cairo_create_layout(label->cairo);

Is there and easy way to render the text in the same size as
GtkLabel's default?

Thanks in advance,
Zoltán Böszörményi
