Huge font size in VirtualBox GUI

Keywords: font type text size large huge Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Windows

Description

Host: Windows 10 x64 Build 1607 ("Anniversary Update").

I installed VirtualBox without incident a few weeks ago and it worked fine (with multiple host system reboots, etc). I started VirtualBox today (5.1.18 from 2017-03-15 - so this was not after an upgrade) and the text in the UI is huge - though the application is still very readable.

I did an upgrade to 5.1.20 just now, and the issue persists.

Attached are some screenshots.

I do run a particular guest VM at 1024x768 with the window "Scale factor" set to 125% or 150% - and I note that a very similar issue described in #14151 seems related to the scale-factor setting: https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/14151 - though I think he's talking about guest font size, not host font size.

I did
