This option is there for reasons of accessibility: 
If you want to scale up pixmap-icons for visually impaired people then
you certainly don't want them to appear blurred/jagged but as sharp as

So if you want to "fix" this bug then you might want to do it by adding
some "accessibility"-words to the description.
