Toolbars are behaving strangely

Hi all,

I've debugging for some time this issue, but couldn't find out what's going 
on. Main problem is that if you set on "kcmshell4 fonts" the toolbar font to 
Verdana 8 Italic, you get on kwrite for instance a bigger font (it is 
Verdana, italic, but maybe 10). Fed up with this problem, I hardcoded the 
font on KToolBar and had exactly the same problem. The results of hard-coding 
to 7pts and 8pts are the ones at:

with patches:

Now if you check Konqueror you also get strange stuff behavior from KToolBar:

- Right click on the main toolbar
- Text Position => Text below Icons (or) Text next to Icons

The toolbar will just ignore you (if you set "Only text" you will see all 
strings cut off because of a lack of space [this reminds me what happens when 
you run umbrello nowadays with for instance Verdana 10 as main font]). When 
you try to drag the toolbar, it actually shows the strings you asked for.

Someone to give some light on this strange behaviors ?
