[Oneiric] Changing system/theme fonts and/or sizes doesn't change the desktop file/folder fonts and/or sizes

Bug #822999 reported by David Raid on 2011-08-08

nautilus (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

To reproduce, install gnome-tweak-tool and change your system fonts and font sizes on each tab. Relog or restart to let the changes take complete effect (I've noticed the titlebars don't change immediately). You'll find every application uses the new font settings as you would expect, however for some strange reason files and folders on the desktop do not. The Examples Folder and Install Ubuntu 11.10 shortcut on my desktop both use the Ubuntu font and the original font size.

I've attached a screenshot to illustrate better. All fonts are set to Droid Sans (except for the monospace font which is set to Droid Mono)

by the way, you can fix this in gsettings with the command
gsettings set org.gnome.nautilus.desktop font ""
or by using dconf-editor to do the same
