Tooltip text truncated - VS 2010 with Resharper 5

I have a new install of VS 2010 with Resharper 5 (the version from the main download link). Most tooltip messages in the editor window have truncated text. For example:

"Constant headerSize is never"
"Name 'headerSize' does not match rule 'Constant fields (private)'. Suggested name is"
"Join declaration and"

Note these *do* display the full message when I mouse over the colored bars in the panel next to the scrollbar (sorry don't know what you call it).

Some others do display correctly:
"Use implicitly typed local variable"
"Use object initializer"

I looked a bit in the forums but didn't see any other mention of this - has anyone else seen this behavior?
I have VS 2008 with 4.5 and that has always been ok.

Hello,

Do you have ClearType turned on? Does it change anything if you do?

Thanks Serge,

Yes I always use ClearType. But I did install both programs on my other laptop and noticed that was working normally. So I was able to guess pretty quickly where it was coming from. On the laptop where I was getting it truncated, I have the text size scaling set at 115%. Once I switched it down to 100% the truncating disappeared. It's not a big issue for me, just was more of a cosmetic one.

Hello,

Well ... looks like they've introduced this old nasty grid fitting problem
with WPF4 (unlike the original WPF which had no grid fitting for rendered
text at all and was scaling very well, but missed some of the visual clarity
in return).

Or could of course be some problem on our side. We'll have a look if we can
repro it locally.
