[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#764347: chromium: Fonts and sizes are way too large

Package: chromium
Version: 37.0.2062.120-3
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

since today (after a system update), my chromium looks unusably huge on a non-hdpi display, even with a new profile.
All menus become hardly usable since text is cut off and scrolling is always required.
This is on a T440s (14") with 1920x1080. Chromium looks fine when I reconfigure my display to 1680x1050.

I suspect this is some kind of high-dpi mode triggered by accident. Is there any way to disable or configure it?
