GTK font size way too big in SuSE 9.2...

This question has been asked before, and yes I did do a search but I couldn't find anything that solved my problem.

I'm pretty much amazed of SuSE 9.2, except for 1 thing, the font sizes in apps like Totem Movie Player (One of my favourite DVD players), grip and basicly GTK based app, are major big, I've made the KDE fonts look nice and small like in Mandrake, and then Oh BAAIIIIHHHLLLL, freaking big fonts. I think this problem resides in the GTK theme, but that's just my theory, any one know a way to solve this?

Add the following to ~/.gtkrc and ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and log out then back in again:
gtk-font-size="sans 9"
Change those parameters to whatever you fancy.
