Problem with erratic font sizes

I have noticed some strange behaviour lately. I do not know if this is a KDE
problem or an X problem. Any input you can provide on this would be
Often (but not always) when I login to KDE the first time after booting my
fonts are very small. I'll adjust them and move on. However, when I restart
X and log in next time (with out rebooting) my fonts are much bigger and I'll
have to size them back. I thought that maybe X was just starting in
different resolutions but xvidtune confirmed that the resolution was the same
in both cases. (Is there an altrernative way besides xvidtune to determine
for sure what resolution I am in?)
The behaviour is consistent in that anytime I have the small fonts I can
restart x and it will be fixed. It is inconsistent in that on a reboot, it
usually but not always exhibits the small fonts.
Now I just restart X before I login anytime I have just booted. Annoying, but
liveable. I can tell before logging in just by the size of the KDE login
screen. Thats why I originally just thought it was a rsolution issue. (If
xvidtune is lying to me, it may still be... ;-)
I am currently running KDE 3.04 on Gentoo 1.4 RC5 but I had the same problem w
3.04 on RH8.
