138 pixels seems like an incredibly arbitrary choice.  For HD monitors
those pixels will consume far less physical space than on a low res

Anyway, that sounds like a bad implementation choice, and you should
try to convince upstream that is so.

I agree that jumpy behavior like this is not good.  I haven't ruled
out applying the patch, but would prefer to see an upstream solution
can be achieved first.
