What is your version of GTK?  That commit points to a bug report
(bug#20432), so this change is not a mistake, it did fix a real
problem with scroll bars.  We could make it conditional on the GTK
version, though.  The bug report mentions a specific GTK version.

The code you mention doesn't use GDK_DPI_SCALE.

I don't think we can simply revert the change in question, but maybe
we could use different code based on GTK version.

Thank you!  I see bugs 20432, 21469, and 18429 that might be relevant.
