That's so descriptive that a patch to fix it is already written.

By the way, I don't think it's possible to fix it at all. WxWidgets renders itself via GTK2, which has no support fot HiDPI at all.

wxWidgets also has a GTK3 backend.

gtk3 branch has the basics of this. It remains to be seen what entertaining breakage will occur on other Linux versions.
