Two days ago some fonts on my system become too widespaced, like this:

enter image description here See how big and widespaced the fonts on Clementine playlist are and how good they look on the appmenu (where my mouse pointer is). This is not because Clementine is QT4, I've got the same problem with Chrome, Opera etc...
I've been messing with system-settings (KDE settings tool) a day before the fonts become that widespaced in order to make my KDE apps look more native on my GNOME, but I haven't touched the fonts settings there.
Any ideas, solutions?

Oddly enought I have no idea what a freehand circle is, can you explain what more do you need excatly? –  me4oslav Feb 16 '11 at 5:49
@me4oslav: A circle drawn with only your hand and without any aid. ;) What I meant was that I can't see what you mean, and I asked if you could draw me some circles or arrows on that picture so that I know what I need to look for. –  Bobby Feb 17 '11 at 21:01
You mean like that: imageshack.us/f/715/73540464.png –  me4oslav Feb 18 '11 at 11:58
Looking at the screenshot, the system appears to be using auto-hinted rendering for the menubar and window titles at the top and manually hinted ("Fully Hinted") rendering for the regular and italic fonts in the foreground application. –  sladen Feb 19 '11 at 22:46
