Font size printing WMS layers

Layers produced by Geoserver 2.1.3 render correctly in the QGIS map window. In particular, labels are readable.
But when printed using print composer, the features themselves appear correctly, but labels are reduced dramatically in size and are unreadable without magnification.
I am using QGIS 1.7.4 and have been saving as PNG and PDF - results are the same.

This is because of the different dpi. QGIS prints with 300 dpi per default (can be changed), but geoserver does not know about this. Since short time, QGIS tries to set DPI parameters for QGIS server, UMN mapserver and Geoserver (it is not WMS standard, so different servers have different keywords). So perhaps geoserver now recognises the DPIs.
But it is not a problem of QGIS or the printing module.
