yes

The window should not be scaled by sqrt(2) there are plenty of other places
where the sqrt(2) could be applied.
and it should not be in the context but static and shared
(of course that is not really your job to do so the patch is ok if you dont
want to work on that)

Many things microsoft did are stupid, but not doing something just because
microsoft did it is even more stupid. If everything ms did were stupid they
would be bankrupt already.
