I don't know gv, but how do you know those plots are too small? The screenshot 
looks okay. Perhaps you only have to zoom in a little.

I think Michael is onto something with his suggestion about fonts. I would try 
searching the web for "gv fonts" or something like it.

Fonts are very complicated on Gnu/Linux. I really know zip-all. There is 
something in the System Settings -> Appearance -> Gtk Styles and fonts that 
lets you use kde fonts in  GTK apps. Perhaps that's not set right?

I meant a good remove of the config files, forcing the app to re-create them. 
It does not seem to be the problem though.

If I come up with anything actually useful, I'll shout. Otherwise I'm doing 
what I should have done -- just shut up :)
