I wonder that, it is happened when the system convert Points to Pixels
when create the font.
for example
8pt in 96dpi
8*96/72=10.6666 pixels
in Windows it convert to 11 pixel, i do not about Linux but if it
trunk the integer and get only 10, the font appear smaller.

Try to change the font Height property that given in pixels to be"
-10" instead of  "-11" and see the differences.
