Small Fonts... Too much small!

Hello there, I have a "stupid" problem that I cannot solve.
I'm running Sarge with KDE 3.3.
I have a couple of applications (just a couple) that have very small fonts and I don't know where to set its size. I looked everywhere....
Have a look on this XMMS screenshot:
Also Emule has this problem...

If it can help... I just moved from Suse and I copied lot of settings within my old $HOME dir.
I think this setting could come from some previous setting.

I think you have to install xfonts-base-transcoded ; xfonts-100dpi-transcoded and xfonts-75dpi-transcoded. This should probably solve your problem.

I'm having a similar problem, but only with Japanese fonts, not English.
I guess I need to find time to sit down and read this sometime: although taking a look at the TOC I'm not sure if it's going to address my problem.
