Re: desktop font + PATCH for 82565

Maybe we shouldn't zoom down fonts pass the default size...frank does
have point, if you zoom down the fonts get really tiny and can be hard
to read. With the default themes this isn't really an issue but i did
notice it when i recently tried gorilla for the first time in a while,
since svg icons at 100% are pretty big.

However i do think for the icon view/list view/all other views we should
just use the system font. For the desktop it's a nice feature to be able
to set the font independently so that you can make a killer looking
desktop but the file manager is just well another application.
