I should have explained better. Both the "Normal (96DPI)" and "Large
(120DPI)" settings work OK. However, try "Custom" with, sat, 144DPI, and
setup is all stretched out of proportion and unusable.

I've now done a bit more research, and I'm convinced that this is a bug in
Microsofts Dialog and/or PropertySheet implementation. Which leaves us a bit
stuck - since there is no easy fix that I can think of.
