font scaling is a problem that started when font scaling was invented. the 
solution is to stop using inches completely, and I thought pd-extended had 
become good at that, but apparently, it's still a problem. But now the 
question that you must answer is : WHICH latest pd-extended are you using 
? there is the latest "41", the latest "42", ... give an actual version 

BTW, how do you set your dpi setting ?
