Product Version = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 20130617-ab3512bc7eab)
Operating System = Linux version 3.7.10-1.1-desktop running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_25
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 23.25-b01
using Dark Nimbus laf, the IDE running with "--fontsize 18" option
The IDE mixes font-sizes in swing components, see the attached screenshots:
1) menu (both popup and main menu) displays submenu labels in smaller font than other menu items
2) tab titles (such as in Tools -> Options -> Misc) uses different sizes for active and other tabs
3) menu bar in the main window uses small fonts (in default size, i guess 12pt ?)

core-main ef2ef9570fe7 makes it a bit better. However there are still some component types that use the default font size.
Nimbus l&f implementation must be really robust if it resist font changes so much...
+1 for a fix on this. My tired, old eyes would really thank you.

There seems to be a race-condition in Nimbus. The size varies between IDE restarts.

This is what I observe too. Nimbus, 8.2, Ubuntu 16.04 Unity
Still a problem for me in Ubuntu 16.04 with XFCE.
