Unity Dash ignores changes to Universal Access text size

Bug Description

Unity Dash appears to space its icons according to the text size that is set at the start of the session. But if you go to System Settings / Universal Access / Text Size and set it to Larger, and then bring up Unity Dash again, the icon spacing is unchanged. If however you then log out and log in again, new spacing is used to accommodate the new text size. Conversely if you then reduce the text size to Smallest, Dash will not compensate until you log out and log in again.
