Scaling with xrandr is very undesirable on a HiDPI monitor, since it
just upscales the screen contents.  I have no idea why people try it at
all these days.  Most likely what you actually want is to tell programs
the DPI of the display, by setting the Xft.dpi X resource.

That's a bug.  Please try to determine why it stopped working.

Yes, but it depends on what you did wrong earlier.
