Actually you seem to have changed the normal font size into 13pt, not 11.5pt.
Anyway, I guess that what did happen is a LaTeX font substitution warning.
Standard LaTeX does not support arbitrary font sizes, rather only a small
fixed set of sizes. Both 13pt and 11.5pt may be replaced by 12pt as the
closest size supported. Arbitrary font sizes are supported by fix-cm.sty
from the LaTeX base bundle.
