Well yes and no. Using gconftool the font settings are applied to any
running apps. Using gtkrc the apps have to be restarted. In a way I think both
gnome and KDE control modules should set the properties of each other - until all
use the same settings method (XSETTING, or whatever).

Why does the gnome-settings-daemon insist on owning the desktop?

Anyway, I won't be applying the patch.
