[hackers] [st] Initial font size issue.

When I specify a font by point size (I'm using "Inconsolata:size=12"),
characters that are substituted from another font because they are not in the
main one appear too small. Doing a zoom reset fixes it. For example:

After: http://i.imgur.com/PMDhfQA.png

I found that adding the pixel size (acquired from the initial font load) to the
pattern then reloading the font fixes the problem. I'm not sure if this is a
proper fix, though.
