I've been using the x2goclient on different machines:

- a laptop with 14" FHD display (157 DPI)

- a desktop with 32" UHD / 4k resolution (137 DPI)

On the desktop, I find the fonts are a bit small, it would be nicer if
the window would zoom to be at least 133% of the original size, maybe more.

I looked at the session preferences and found the option "Set Display
DPI" option, it is currently set to 96.  I tried changing it to 137 and
reconnected to the existing session and it looked the same.  What effect
should this setting have and would it help in my situation?
