This is a known issue with gadgets and custom DPI. See this older post of mine.

Gadgets, custom DPI, pink outline

The note that it doesn't seem to affect settings of 125% or 150%. It is the way the gadgets are written. I do not know what attribute is the cause, but other gadgets are written in such a way that they do not exhibit this behavior. A Guy
