Nice isn't it!  Where's the problem? ;)

Dimension in what?  Pixel?  Physical lenght, width?  Fake?

Cheating?  Why not take a ruler and (number of pixels)/(number of inch)
[1 inch == 2.54 cm.]  Then tell gnome the correct dpi value.   Gnome
can't figure it out and hardcodes it, so it needs help :(

What you see now is the real physikal dimension of fonts and icons
that you should have been there since day one you bought your Laptop

From now on when you switch from a low to high res Monitor you will
always get the same size of fonts.  When svg icons will be used
everywhere (or a cached version adapted to your dpi) even the icons
will be of the same size.

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
