UI problems dependent on Windows setting

I just upgraded to Solidworks 2014 from 2013. I have a Dell Procision M6600 with nVidia 3000M. I am using the latest verified drivers.

 

In Windows 7 there is an option for scaling the display. I use 2 Dell U2711 27" displays with a resolution of 2560x1440. Using the default display settings, many things are just slightly too small for comfort. My eyesight is fine.

I prefer to set this to 125%, as shown above. With Solidworks 2013, I had no issues with this. But after installing 2014, I noticed the problems in the pictures below.

 

At first I didn't know what was going on, so I performed a clean installation. No luck. It was only after I toggled the display setting above to 100% that the problem went away.

 

Note: I had tried the new text size settings in 2014. They don't help. Any thoughts?
