I've noticed similar weird scaling issues, especially if you start with 
a smallish font size set, and then zoom in a lot, the autocomplete 
doesn't resize, but for me it's only the vertical auto-complete item 
height that fails to match the font size, like this:


Not sure if that's the same thing as you have.

That part is controllable by themes, although there's some bug somewhere 
that colors can get stuck even if you change themes. For example if you 
activate the Retro theme (which is one of few that changes theme 
dramatically of autocomplete box), and then change to another theme, it 
gets stuck on the Retro one and never resets.
