This problem will get fixed during v6 development.  The other option is
to build with wxWidgets with gtk2 and disable wxPython support.  There
is no ideal solution at the moment.  This is the reason that we even
created a 5.1 release.  I think users would rather have the slightly
distorted graphics (which Vesa's suggest improves) than no wxPython support.
