No idea how to hide duplicates, at least put it in the correct category.

the fontsgetdrawn too big on my system. By changing manually teh defaults using system rpeferences I noticed that I need to set the helvetica font to size 9 to have it drawn in size 12.

Windowmaker draws it correctly in size 12 (when compared side-to-side).
Gregory confirmed that the default of OpenStep was helvetica, 12. He suggests a fontconfig and/or dpi problem.

This is verified on xlib currently.
