I saw this behaviour with national fonts (i mean - bigger English font, smaller Russian).

I think that if GTK cannot find some symbol in the font, that was selected for menus or message view - it does font substitution, but the substituted font usually looks somewhat different...

Use of Unicode font will completely solve the problem, but usually You can install some fonts that contain symbols you need or change font for Sylpheed/GTK so that no substitution occurs.
