I am also experiencing this on a Toshiba Z30t-A. The 1920x1080 is a bit too much for a 13.3" laptop. I've been tinkering with dconf and narrowed down my desired settings to:

gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor # same as '1.0'
gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Interface text-scale-factor 1.25
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface text-scaling-factor 1.25
gsettings set com.ubuntu.user-interface scale-factor "{'eDP1': 10}"

But I can't figure out how to make them stick from session to session. I created a startup script as #22 suggests but font sizes are still all over the place. (Even if I only tweak the two text-scaling settings and leave UI scale-factors alone.)

A temporary fix for nailing down the settings would be much appreciated. As others have pointed out it's GNOME's text scaling setting that seems to be wonky. (I believe that's the technical term :)
