Description of problem:
After a fresh install of RedHat Linux 8.0 (purchased from RedHat), and restoring
backed up data for my user account (but _not_ the dot-files except .mozilla) and
attempting to launch OpenOffice.org I get a blank working screen and a dialog
box with a font that is so large I can't read the message in it. (See attached
graphics. Using 1:1 in The Gimp will show what I mean).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RedHat 8.0 (including OOo)
2.Restore home directory data (except dot-files)
3.Attempt to launch OpenOffice.org Writer
To reproduce after first attempt
4. Remove .openoffice, .user60.rdb, and .sversionrc
Actual Results: Writer screens are blank, toolbar is off to side and closed.
Pulling over reveals huge application fonts. OpenOffice.org is unusable.
Expected Results: Reasonable sized fonts for menus which appear at the top or
side of the working window.

This appears almost completely to the left of the workspace OOo is launched in.
I have pulled it over so it is visible. Aside from moving it no changes were
View in The Gimp at a 1:1 ratio to see what I mean.

The main application screen of OOo.;
As with the other attachment view at a 1:1 ration in The Gimp. Once you close
the welcom dialogue window pull the right side bar over a small amount. This
shows why the toolbar isn't at the top - The font is way too large.
Problem was using centimeters instead of millimeters for display size (dpi was
way off as a result).
