font_height_demo

steps to reproduce
- open attached spreadsheet document
- on sheet "demo" increase column width for column O from 0,55cm to 2,00cm for example
- change to sheet "Tabelle2"
- change back to sheet "demo"
result: font height changes – font is much bigger now
do vice versa and font will become smaller

Reproducible with "AOO 4.1.0 RC3 – English UI / German locale [AOO410m17(Build:9763))  -  Rev. 1586584 2014-04-11 08:56:50]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", “historic” 4. User Profile used for all predecessor versions

Additional Info:
----------------
(a) Not a new effect, already visible with OOo 3.1.1
(b) Not limited to .ots, also visible after having saved as .ods
(c) Comparing button label in reporter's sample document to a cell text 
    "Hello World" (both are Segoe UI 9) I see that font size in button 
    looks smaller
(d) The effect is "somehow" related to Menu 'Tools  -> Options -> Calc -> 
    Input Settings -> Use Printer Metrics for text formatting'. 
    With Printer Petrics = ON reported effect is not visible, Label in 
    button shows bigger size immediately when document becomes opened
(e) With reporter's sample you can toggle button label font size by 
    activating / deactivating printer metrics
(f) At least on my PC with Segoe UI 9 font size of Column and Row headings
    follows font size in button toggling printer metrics due to (2)
(g) I tried LibO 3.5 on Ubuntu, there the reported effect is not visible, 
    may be because different font is used by default.
(h) I don't understand this "Increase Row width" effect

(i) I am pretty sure that the problem is not generally limited to WIN,
    but might be not visible in Some Linux distriutions because different font
    used

@Edwin:
Do you see an effect toggling printer metrics?

>Do you see an effect toggling printer metrics?
confirming, use printer metrics = OFF is responsible for this effect
