Even without your patch, resizing works in the following scenario:
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.

So basically you are right, the scaling information is missing in the
first call, and it is present in subsequent calls.
calculates the text width. It is always 100% when called first,
regardless of the scaling factor. You need to find out why, e.g. by
setting a breakpoint to BackingWindow::initControls() and see the
backtrace at each call.
