The interesting thing is that setup's UI is entirely defined in terms of
dialog template (which is why it is not resizable). Now, MS say "Most dialog
boxes are laid out using dialog units, which scale with the system DPI.
However, custom layout logic usually needs to be revisited." Except setup
doesn't *have* any custom layout logic - just dialog units. Hence I suspect
its MS's bug.
