Classic Mode: The bottom panel does not adjust its size when scaling text (large text: universal access)

Gnome 3.8 (classic) - Fedora 19
By activating the "large text" in the settings menu of universal access, in Classic mode, the bottom panel does not adjust its size to properly display text.
This also happens to Resize text (increase or decrease size) from gnome-tweak-tool or use another theme in gnome-shell.
Besides the text seems to change from bold to normal. Resets when hovering over the menu text.
To reply you have to open the Gnome panel configuration and activate large text on universal access panel. Notice how the text grows in size in the same space (in the lower panel).
Also try the font menu in gnome-tweak-tool.
Confirming. I changed fonts in gnome-tweak-tool, and the text only got the new font once I mouse-hovered over the panel items individually.

window-list: Expand window buttons vertically
The window-list's fixed height currently allows us to get away without
expanding buttons, however this won't be the case anymore once we start
adapting the list with the text scaling. So fix up the code to do what
was always the intention anyway.

window-list: Reposition on height changes
The window list position depends on both the monitor geometry and the
list height, however changes to the latter are currently ignored. For
the time being this doesn't matter due to the list's fixed height, but
we are about to scale the list with the text, so reposition the list
on height changes.

window-list: Use font-relative sizes for width/height
Just like the top bar, the window list should scale according to
the font scaling factor, so convert the existing pixel sizes into
