 When desktop scaling is not 1.0, mythfrontend is scaled inversely so a 4k
 display with scaling set to 1.5 (under kde) makes the UI appear at
 2560x1440 instead of 3840x2160:

 2019-01-27 16:07:14.117391 I  mythuihelper.cpp:260:GetScreenBounds
 MythUIHelper: Primary screen: 0.
 2019-01-27 16:07:14.117421 I  mythuihelper.cpp:314:GetScreenBounds
 MythUIHelper: Using screen 0, 2560x1440 at 0,0
 2019-01-27 16:07:14.145047 N  DisplayRes.cpp:64:Initialize  Desktop video
 mode: 3840x2160 59.997 Hz

 Although the whole screen is covered, the UI is only shown in part of it
 (see attachment).

 Setting Qt::AA_DisableHighDpiScaling in the application seems to fix the
 problem but is only available from QT 5.6 onwards.

 This doesn't only affect hidpi displays.  A laptop with 1920x1080 but
 desktop scaling set to 1.2 shows the same issue.
