Font change in Gnu emacs/X11 following upgrade


I just upgraded for the first time for a few months.
Starting my Gnu emacs under X11, I notice that my font (and frames) is
larger than previously, by a factor ~1.5.

I did record the following last October, and it stayed the same now:

~> cygcheck -c | egrep 'bitstream.*vera'
font-bitstream-vera-ttf        1.10-1              OK
~> xlsfonts | egrep -- '-bitstream-bitstream vera sans mono.*-iso.*-1$'
-bitstream-bitstream vera sans mono-bold-o-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso10646-1
-bitstream-bitstream vera sans mono-bold-o-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso8859-1
-bitstream-bitstream vera sans mono-bold-r-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso10646-1
-bitstream-bitstream vera sans mono-bold-r-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso8859-1
-bitstream-bitstream vera sans mono-medium-o-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso10646-1
-bitstream-bitstream vera sans mono-medium-o-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso8859-1
-bitstream-bitstream vera sans mono-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso10646-1
-bitstream-bitstream vera sans mono-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso8859-1

With list-fontsets in the *Help* buffer:

Fontset: -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-default
Fontset: -*-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-standard
Fontset: -bitstream-Bitstream Vera Sans

The X server greets me with a new identity:

Vendor: The Cygwin/X Project
Release: (10800000)
Build Date: 2010-04-02

I join my cygcheck output.

Any explanation and quick fix?
