Nex xorg (when it actually fetches the correct displaysize) is producing
fonts with correct size (as opposed to random size as before, which may
have suited you but was random nevertheless)

If you want small fonts configure small font sizes in the font dialogs
(as in ~ 8 pt)
If you want big fonts configure big font sizes in yout font dialogs (as
in ~ 14pt)

If you app is not able to configure font size but relied on users
misconfiguring X to change the font sizes meanings complain to the app
