Yes, but IIRC the VMs usually do some OS calls to find the display metrics and then reduce the header-requested size if needed. So *if* the build machines have some setting that is small - as one might imagine on a headless build server? - then you get screwed. I think. My exemplar here is what happens on a Pi when you use vnc to connect to it but the display size preference is unset - the default is a completely useless 320x240 or similar that is too small for the UI tools that would reset that size. Catch 11 (that's Catch 22 when it's half the size you need).
