Print screen button takes pictures at the wrong resolution on HiDPI screens.

Bug Description

On my HiDPI screen (3200x1800) with scaling 2x (enabled by default on Freya), pressing the Prnt Screen button takes a screenshot, but instead of the screenshot being 3200x1800, the resolution of the screenshot is 1600x900.

This makes the screenshot uselessly blurry.

This also affects screenshots taken with the "Screenshot" app. Regardless of whether or not they take a picture of the full screen or just an area that I select.
