That should take care of this particular session for a single client 
configuration, but ideally I would like to find a more general solution 
where the xpra client could send the xpra server the DPI it already uses 
and get the server to adapt on the fly. (if at all possible)
I have seen a number of posts referring to xrdb and Xft.dpi, but I have 
no idea how that interacts with toolkits (gtk, qt, tk..)
I will need to investigate, pointers welcome.
