Changing the font size in Windows XP is partially ignored by the WinUXTheme

steps to reproduce:

  • select the "Windows classic" theme like this: right click on Desktop -> "Display Properties" -> Themes tab (I've got a german Windows XP here so I don't know if the translations are correct)
  • activate the WinUX theme under Windows XP
  • launch some GNUstep app(s)
  • in the "Display Properties" Inspector of Windows XP select some different font size in the "Appearance" tab

-> most of the font size changes are not reflected in the GNUstep app(s), only windows title font sizes and menu font sizes change, see attached screenshot win_classic_theme-font_size_change_ignored_partially.png

expected behaviour:

  • all the font size changes of the Windows classic theme of Windows XP are reflected in the GNUstep app(s)
