Ok, I see.

That's what I did.  Essentially I've applied your patch with an
additional fboundp check for `frame-monitor-attributes'.  If it's
available (24.4), then your variant is used, if not, the previous
variant basically always saying 96 DPI is used.

So let's see if we get any complaints with the next ELPA release.

I'll close this report now.  Thanks again for the contribution!
