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

Do you see an effect toggling printer metrics?

confirming, use printer metrics = OFF is responsible for this effect
