Okay, the mystery is solved: I had Qt and PyQt4 without qt3support.
Thus I had a /usr/qt/3/bin/qtconfig but not a /usr/bin/qtconfig. The
qtconfig in /usr/qt/3/bin has no influence on Qt4/PyQt4 applications and
so the font size defaulted to Sans Serif 9 (which is way to small).
I re-emerged qt and PyQt4, ran the new qtconfig and was able to change
the font size without problems.
