Windows and XFree use different default dpi. So many of the patches
created on Windows use a 12 font, while many Linux users prefer font
size 10. 10 looks tiny on Windows, whereas 12 looks rather large on
Linux. The problem is, that tighly spaced objects will overlap on
Linux, but might look nice on Windows. Actually your changes probably
won't collide with this particular problem. 

Did you do some performance tests?
