Is 'xrdb -query | grep dpi' reporting Xft.dpi 96? If yes, that's probably what
GTK is responding to. I don't remember Xft.dpi being a common problem with GTK2
apps, but with GTK3 apps outside of Gnome or its relatives it certainly can be.

Xft.dpi is how TDE desktop settings forces DPI, but with limited choices. Put
Xft.dpi in e.g. ~/.Xresources and it isn't limited.

OTOH, 2160x1080 on a 6" diagonal might be escaping a sanity check somewhere.
