Description of problem:

Gnome and gdm ingnores system-wide default DPI value set in gconf.
Side effect is that gnome-appearance-properties crashes and has some missing text in UI

How reproducible:

- I wanted to set system-wide default DPI for all users and gdm:
[root@localhost ~]# gconftool-2 --direct --config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults --type int --set /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/dpi 94

- value is set correctly:
[user@localhost ~]$ gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/font_rendering/dpi

Actual results:

Custom value is ignored by gnome and gdm. When I open gnome-appearance-properties, it show missing text on Rendering section on Font tab. After clicking Details, gnome-appearance-properties application crashes.
