as a workaround to set the font name and size, you can
1. select text tool
2. click in the draw area
3. issue <ctrol>+<shift>+T [ the font select dialog popups ]
4. adjust at will, and then press the button 'set as default'

The font name, size and variant will be used for all subsequent text, BUT: if you click in the toolbar font name, or size, the font name will reset to the inkscape default ('Sans' in winXP). Sometimes the buttons for bold-italic also triggers the reset. The font reset dont show at the toolbar click, but at the first keypress after the click.
