  gnome-screenshot produces very low quality blurry screenshots

Status in GTK+:
Status in gtk+3.0 package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  I believe, this is because I am using a HiDPI display. Every time I
  take a screenshot, I get a blurry image. This is not what I want when
  making a screenshot. Everywhere else when I make a screenshot, I get a
  100% copy of my screen, pixel-perfect.
