As a workaround, turn scaling to 1:1.

The scaling is set at 1:1, but both web pages and the UI are scaled to 2:1.

The chromium settings menu is unreadable, as shown in the screendump, at all scales.

(Pop-up boxes work fine at all scales.)

I have also tried chromium with a guest user, with both openbox and kde. Same issue.

Chrome Versjon 35.0.1916.47 beta aura does not have the same issue.
