Does IDLE now work on your HiDPI screen without the patch? or does it not work even with the patch?  

I just got a 2.7 worktree working with Python built.  2.7.15+ comes with 8.5.19 instead of 8.5.15.  IDLE runs as I expect and windows look normal, as with 3.x, both before and after the patch.  

If calling fix_scaling ever causes anyone a problem on some particular combination of OS, Python, and Tk versions, they could neutralize it by adding the following after the current definition.

def fix_scaling: pass
