globalLoc returns wrong values!

With LC 6.5.2 on Windows 7 I am taking a screenshot from a rect like this:
put globalLoc (the topleft of image "Image") into tTopLeft
put globalLoc (the bottomright of image "Image") into tBotRight
put tTopLeft & "," & tBotRight into tRectSnap
export snapshot from rect tRectSnap to tScreenshot as PNG
This works fine, beside when the user changes the textsize to 150% in his
display settings. Then the snapshot rect is shifted and the user gets wrong
content in his snapshot.
Has anybody stumpled upon this issue yet and has found a workaround for
this? Perhaps checking a windows system setting and recalculating the rect?
I know, you can change the textsize on mac too, but that's really only the
TEXT size and that doesn't bother my LC program. On windows this option is
actually not only the text size, but the whole screen is resized. Is there
something similar on Mac, what could cause a similar problem, what I didn't
Thanks for any ideas
