Are you sure your notebook uses 24x24? I only ask because 120dpi ought to
correspond to 20x20 (assuming 96dpi corresponds to 16x16). Unless there's
something I'm missing. I'm not sure which of 24x24 and 16x16 windows would
choose in preference but it has to scale either way.

BTW on my machine, running at 120dpi makes _all_ the system tray items 
look pretty crappy.
