Finally got around to test this app. My conclusion is that the app 
itself is broken. The control misalignment is caused by a varying size 
of the default application font (in Windows it is "MS Sans Serif"). This 
problem can also be replicated in native Windows by selecting "Large 
Fonts" in Control Panel->Display, in the Advanced options of the last tab.
