Please remeber that I talk about List View. The fonts at 25% in ListView
are about the same as 100% in Icons View.

I have for:
application,desktop,window title: Sans 12
terminal: monospace 12

This is Fedora Core 3 box with Nautilus 2.8.1. I know it is rather
ancient but this one I have at work.
The fonts are set as 75 dpi. Monitor is 19". 
What is funny the dpi in fonts dialog has nothing to do with what
reports xdpyinfo.

I compared it with ms windows, and with 25% setting the fonts are still
larger in nautilus.

The other thing is, that the vertical spacing of elements in windows
explorer is different than in nautilus. I mean in nautilus we have
proportionally more space between elements. My personal feeling is that
it looks better in windows.

On Windows I have "small fonts" - it means 96 dpi. 
I know that the dpi in windows has a slightly different meaning than in
real world ;) but I write it here, so we have some data to compare.

Exactly the same problem I have on Fedora 8 and CentOS 5.  And with
every Fedora release as far as I remember. Unfortuantely I left my
notebook home so can't check the values.

Hmm, my defaults are sane (more or less) for all other applications.
