I have a little more information on this issue.

I was able to solve the WINDOW part of the issue by removing
"AutoScaleDimensions" and "AutoScaleMode" from each forms designer property
but some/most of my text based controls are still being hacked off. I'm
assuming that the stuff being "hacked off" also contains these properties
deeper in the controls. The most notable controls are the MenuStrip,
StatusStrip, ContextMenuStrip, and all ToolTips. Also, to correct what I had
originally stated, these controls appear to working fine in mono under
Windows, this issue is only on Mono under Linux.

Is there a way to globally disable the AutoScale features? Does anyone have
any suggestions on how to resolve or at least start troubleshooting what
could be the cause?
