Yes, the case that this patch fixes is the following:
1. Set scaling to 130% (and observe the clipped text)
2. Press e.g. Text Document button to start Writer.
3. Close Writer with the X control at the top right of the window.
4. Observe that the start center buttons are resized correctly.
5. Close and re-open LibreOffice.
After step 5, without the patch, the buttons are misrendered. With the
patch, they are resized correctly.
Another interesting effect I noticed:
1. Start up with scaling set to 100%. (Correct rendering.)
2. Set scaling to 130%. (Clipped text - the buttons do not grow.)
3. Set scaling back to 100%. (Now the buttons are too large - they are
sized as if the scaling was still 130%.)
I've done some debugging (Is there any way to set "make debugrun" to
use something other than plain gdb? I usually use kdbg.), and found
that GenericSalLayout::GetTextWidth() is using incorrect glyph width
values. Apparently the font size is being set only after
(Debugging is further complicated by the fact that as I try to
rearrange the code calling Resize() to test various possible fixes, I
often get mysterious segfaults which gdb often maps to blank lines in
the source code between function definitions. Go figure.)
