Can I chip in with one thing here please, with an apology in advance if 
it's already been fixed.

I use a large screen cast off by a colleague who got a bigger one (which 
he needs due to eyesight issues) and find that everything scales nicely 
if the (Debian Linux, KDE) fonts DPI is increased from 96 to 120.

The one thing that doesn't scale is the Lazarus IDE status bar, where 
the display of cursor position gets truncated as soon as a unit is >1000 
lines. Could somebody get this to track the overall form width- I'd 
submit a patch myself if I had time.
