Maybe the problem here could be the Emacs version, I'm using Emacs
24.3.1.  A long while ago I remember having to hit "t" after launching a
presentation to get the large fonts which sounds very similar to the
issue you describe above.  I don't suppose it's possible for you to
switch to Emacs 24?

I'm using Xmonad which is probably less common even than xfce.  I guess
this difference could also be the cause of the weird behavior.

Sorry I don't have the motivation to test under other window managers.
Hopefully an Emacs upgrade will help or there is some other workaround
(e.g., pressing "t" after calling epresent-run).
