I've now commented in great detail on the bug explaining a few of the
reasons why I chose to hardcode 96dpi years ago. The situation has
changed a bit (and there would be an argument to up the 96dpi to
something higher), but most of the arguments against using the reported
monitor DPI as the logical font DPI still hold.
