After using RDP, bizarrely sized windows of opposite sizes

After using Remote Desktop from a computer set at 250% into this computer set at 150%, windows show up either enormously huge or so tiny they're unreadable.

This only happens after using RDP, and fixes itself on reboot but not automatically.

That only refreshes the icons. It's some sort of roaming profile merging issue.

I found a way to avoid it, either using the shadow feature of RDP or using another device that does not have DPI settings (iPad for example).

The shadow feature turns RDP more into a VNC type of thing but needed a lot of configuration, policy updates, firewall, etc.
