That's weird. I have the opposite problem with a big monitor. The DPI
computed from the actual EDID info is really small so it figures
fonts about 4 pixels high will be what it wants.

In any case, it is possible to fix (though a pain in the patoot):

Basically you need to make it look as though the user named "gdm"
has run the gnome appearance properties app and set his default
font DPI (since GDM is running as user GDM).
