Slide Show Environment creates discordant font sizes

Mathematica 7.0.1    Mac OS X 10.5.7 PowerPC G4

I have made my own style sheet. It has worked reliably in every way I  
have used it in V6, including (from memory) making Slide Shows with it.

Making a slide show with any of the inbuilt style sheets seems to  
double all the font sizes. I can cope with that feature. But when I  
try to make a slide show in V7 using my style sheet, only the input/ 
output cells (and in-line symbols formatted in input style) double to  
24 points in size. No other font sizes change in any of my private  
styles. So now I have a slide show with a very discordant mismatch.

This is what I do to get the problem:

File > New > Slide Show

Format > Style Sheet > My style sheet
[font sizes show as per my style sheet]

Format > Screen Environment > Slide Show   or   Slide Show Palette >  
Slide Show
[font sizes show as per my style sheet, except input/output has  
doubled to 24 pt]

I don't want to change each of the inputs back to 12 point manually,  
because this change does not survive re-entering, or copy/paste.

Any ideas why this is happening? Or work -arounds?
