gtk-font problem

Hi all

I've got a little problem with gtk-fonts in fluxbox. First to start out, I've got a .gtkrc-2.0 file:

benjamin@io ~ $ cat .gtkrc-2.0 
include "/usr/share/themes/Mist/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"

style "user-font"
  font_name="Sans 12"
#gtk-font-name = "Sans 10" <-- tried it with this option too - didn't help
widget_class "*" style "user-font"

include "/home/benjamin/.gtkrc.mine"

This config was made by gtk-theme-chooser (or something like that).
However, not all of the font-problems were gone.
To post an example: link

The fonts look all good, except the ones on the bottom right part. They are very, very small. And obviously, I don't want to be them that way. The application is liferea, but it's not the only one having problems: evolution (The Mail-Composer uses a very small font. The window is good, but the email-text has small fonts), gdm (the font used when I type my username: also small) are also that small.

Now... what can I do about this?

Thanks a lot!

EDIT: Just to let you know: I don't and will never run gnome-settings. Fonts would look good, but It causes trouble with my keyboard and besides, I don't want all that gnome stuff in my memory just for the themes
