Hm, I guess it has to do with Tk. I also run 4.3.0 on my Laptop, but I
think, it's an older Tk there (will have to check). I don't have the
font problem in Pd. I do have it in some other applications, mainly
Gtk apps, though, but it's the other way around: Everything is
smaller.  I still don't understand Debian's new font system (Defoma)
but found, that it helped, to install as much font-related packages as
possible. Many start with "ttf-" now.
