Sage 6.7 unusable on high res display

Installed Sage 6.7 on a new Windows 8.1 Notebook with a 3200x1536 pixel display. All works fine, but Sage is unusable because the fonts are way too small. It seem that VirtualBox is hardwired to assume 72dpi displays and scales accordingly. Is there a way to override this?

During the boot sequence, a CentOS screen is shown briefly. Is there a way to get into the guest OS to edit the X11 config files in /etc/X11/... ? I don't really want to go there, but I could not find any way to fix this so far.

I'm sorry for the mundane nature of this question, but it is a show-stopper for me.

Kind regards, -- Andreas
