Existence of problem confirmed here. It seemed to me that sidebar.exe was
drinking up 100% of a single CPU core, although I could have been wrong about
that. (I just posted a new thread on the same problem, plus a rendering
problem with the Weather gadget; I didn't connect the problem with DPI,
though, so I didn't notice this post first.)

I also run a higher (custom) DPI setting. Hmmm. Other relevant specs here:
Vista SP1 x64.

I hope that somebody has a solution (plus a fix for Weather Gadget's
rendering with IE8 installed).
