This is by design.  If the font size hasn't been specified, then the UA has to
make a choice regarding what font size to use... 16px (the preference for
non-monospace fonts) or 13px (the preference for monospace fonts).  The
presence of the explicit generic family is taken as a hint by WebKit that the
list is of monospace fonts, and therefore the user-preferred monospace default
font size should be used (13px).

I suspect this does not match other browsers though, so we could consider
changing our behavior, but I certainly don't think this behavior violates the
specification (or is incorrect).
