Dual-display fonts too small on Suse 9.1

it took me a while to setup a dual-display on my machine with the new 6111 nvidia drivers.
never the less i succeeded finally after learning XF86CONFIG completly.
i am not using clone view on my two CRT 17 inch.
i am using kde 3.2.
my mouse can move from one screen to another without a problem still i cannot move applications in any direction.
but that's not the problem
the system was running fine until the 1st desktop on the left had all fonts shrunk to an invisible level while the 2nd desktop had all fonts on the usual level.
i tried to increase the font level on the 1st desktop and it appeared that the two are connected so i cannot increase the fonts on one without increasing the font on the other.
that doesn't seen to be a disaster until i had to increase the font on the 1st desktop to a "readable" level which was 130...... and u know how the 2nd desktop fonts became........"MASSIVE"
would be small word to compare......
any ideas would be welcome..

is it possible that the fonts just fixed themselves by themselves?
because that's what just happened
au revoir
