the font sizes in are far too small, the top pull down menu has the right font size - like the rest of my windows system -but all other is far too small - setting the font sizes in the options of the administrator does only affect some elements causing even more trouble - but setting this font sizes there should not be the solution - other applications (Firefox, Thunderbird, IE, Eclipse, ...) on my system (Windows XP) have the right font size

How to repeat:
 - in Windows XP
 - set your screen resolutino to 1920x1440
 - set your DPI to 144 !important!
   this can be done in the advanced display settings

 - take a look in the MySQL Administrator

Suggested fix:
do it like the others do ... :-)

use the system font metrics, not your own.

Due to limitations in the layouting schema we used this cannot be fixed in the current tools. It will be taken care of in the next generation of tools.
