Text toolbar spinboxes are not really useful with default units changed

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

With new document opened ->
Enter some text on canvas and go to "Spacing between letters (px)" spinbox (BTW, I think "px" is incorrect in trunk) and enter some arbitrary value there. All good! Small arrow icons beside entry-field work too.

Change Default units to mm using Document properties.
Enter new value in the same spinbox. It'll go crazy. Spinbox arrow for increasing numeric value will now make letter spacing smaller on every click.

I didn't take a closer look yet, but as discussed with vlada on irc, this seems to be related to

@vlada - can you confirm this fixed in trunk rev >= 13937?

@~suv - I'd say that this one is through! Feel free to close it.
