Wrong GUI scaling on very large screen resolution ultrawidescreen triple monitors

I have a 3x1280x1024 screen. I upgraded from 5.2.30 to 6.0.10 and now some part of the GUI are too large.
Prior to the upgrade, I could resize the main virtualbox window to 1280x1024 so that it fits one of my triple-monitors. With 6.0.10, the main window can't be reduced horizontally to less than approximately 1600x1024. I think this is because the GUI elements are already collapsed to the non-overlapping minimum but they are still too large.
The guest window is too big too. I used to set the guest screen to 1152x864 and I had space left around it. Now with 6.0.10, the UI elements around the window are so big that it the same 1152x864 guest window is too tall for the screen and it even has to add (large) scrollbars to it.
The issue is prominent in the menus. Also, the larger the monitor resolution, the more pixelated the guest preview.
If I set my screen resolution to a lower single monitor resolution (1280x1024) the issue is not present. The issue is proportional to the wideness of the screen. See the attached screenshots for comparison between different resolutions.
Host is Debian 8 Jessie 64bit. Guest is irrelevant.
