What you should have used, is a unit other than pixels. You have designed
your forms using pixels (forms default...) so you end up with different sizes
in different displays. If you have created your forms using fdesign, you
should have gave: fdesign ... -unit mm (or whatever, refer to the manual)
to change the unit system. I have never tried this, but what if you change
the units to mill-meters? The manual says that for typical displays mm are
too close to pixels, and i suppose mm are resolution indepentant...
