KDE Fonts Occasionally Very Small

I'm running a fresh install Mandrake 10, but this has happened to me with older versions too. The funny thing is that it didn't happen with Mandrake 9.2.

Sometimes when I log into KDE, the fonts appear incredibly tiny, and the only way to fix it is to keep logging out and back in until they appear normal again, and even that usually doesn't work.

I imagine it has something to do more with the X-server than anything else, but I am at a loss as to what exactly is screwing up and how to fix it. Has this happened to anybody else before? Any ideas what I can do?

Well, I changed the Display Manager from Mandrake to KDM, and it seems to work alright now. Any reason that Mandrake DM would be better than KDM?
