Exclamation Very small fonts in kde (default DPI) after upgrading to 8756


after I upgraded from 8178 to 8756 today, my fonts in KDE were very small (close to unreadable). I didn't change anything in my xorg.conf, and it seems as if the
Option "UseEdidDpi" "DFP"
doesn't work anymore, so the DPI were set to 75x75 instead of 95x96...

Also another warning occured in the logfile, considering TwinView, where I tell that my TFT is right of my CRT:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to find all display devices requested in TwinView
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Orientation string "DFP RightOf CRT".
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to get display devices "DFP" for DPI computation.(==) NVIDIA(0): DPI set to (75, 75); computed from built-in default
Still both monitors work as wanted, except from the small fonts...

My temporary solution / workaround is to statically set the DPI, but just in case that this is considered a bug (not a feature ), I'll attach my xorg.log with version 8178 (so you can see that both errors didn't occur when using the old version) and the nvidia-bug-report.log.
