HorizSync and VertRefresh shouldnt affect font size at all. This are limits
of what you monitor is capable off, they only affect what modes Xorg
thinks are available. You normaly souldnt set them at all, they should be
read from EDID, only tinker with them if some video modes that should be
present are not.
