That's not weird, that's what should happen.... The logic (at least
the intended one!) in the driver would be to give you "used font size
20 when 22 was requested" if there are no scalable fonts.
Oho! I think I see it: If you're using only nonscalable fonts, you are
assumed to have all the Adobe design sizes,
8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 17, 18, 20, 24, 25, 34
but some of these (11, 17, 20, 25, 34) are only available if you also
install 100dpi fonts. With only the 75dpi fonts, all you get is 8, 10,
12, 14, 18, 24. The logic in the driver doesn't catch this cas
properly, which it probably should.
