A bit odd:
$ grep -E 'DPI|dimensions' /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(**) NOUVEAU(0): Display dimensions: (290, 180) mm
(**) NOUVEAU(0): DPI set to (112, 112)
290mm x 180mm and 112x112 DPI are indeed correct (1280x800, 13.3" widescreen), however:
$ xdpyinfo | grep -E 'dimensions|resolution'
dimensions: 1280x800 pixels (338x211 millimeters)
resolution: 96x96 dots per inch
X appears to be getting bogus data, which screws up font sizing.
I'm on a MacBook Pro 13" with GeForce 9400M (NVac). Using nouveau-drm from the
kernel tree with git rev eeec3a1ecd703d3a32fe223274d2a77686030d78 (built out of
tree for kernel 2.6.32-gentoo-r2), and xf86-video-nouveau git rev
If there's any more data or info I can provide, please let me know.

Are you sure this is a dupe? That bug seems to refer to a general problem with xorg-server 1.7. When I use 'nvidia' instead of 'nouveau', my DPI is reported correctly. So it sounds like this is something that the video driver does indeed have control over.
(If it's not *appropriate* for the video driver to 'unbreak' this, then of course I understand.)
