[kde-linux] Everything's big since upgrade

Pardon me if this is discussed in the archives.... I searched a bit but
couldn't find anything relevant.
I've recently upgraded to SUSE 10.1 and thus KDE 3.5.1. FWIW, I use
IceWM with KDE.
Before the upgrade everything was "sized" right for my resolution:
fonts, icons, etc. After upgrading (actually it was a reinstall), I
loaded my home directory back, and found that I had to start tweaking
things... in particular many fonts and icons had become much BIGGER. I
have adjusted some of them by hand (esp. for IceWM), but thought that it
was probably a more fundamental problem that might be fixed by a single
tweak somewhere. Note that X.org settings seem fine - resolution is as
expected - so I really don't wanna mess with that at all.
One that particularly stands out is the IM client gaim. This has become
really HUGE. I note that it's a GTK+ app, and wondered whether the
problem might be something in the interaction of KDE with this library.
Still... all of the YaST2-related configuration apps also have much
larger fonts now, and I would guess these are qt? Anyway...
Any hints or help in fixing this the Right Way(tm) would be appreciated.
