echo "Xft.dpi: 123" | xrdb -override

Remove (you need to reload the entire database)
xrdb -query | grep -v Xft.dpi | xrdb -load

This reads out the current database, strips every line containing "Xft.dpi" and loads the result as new database.
xrdb -remove wipes *everything*.

Whether and where Xft.dpi is set (KDE font config kcm enforcing a resolution?) by your distro, i don't know either - sorry.
