Document font too large (Calc, Writer; zoom at 100%)

Hello everybody,

I've a strange problem with a fresh install of OpenOffice 4.1.3 (Rev. 1761381) on MacOS Sierra 10.12.5.
In Writer and Calc documents, the content appears too large. I attached a screenshot showing:
- bulky document content at cell A1 (Writer document not included in screenshot, but same problem)
- document zoom at 100% (red mark on the lower right)
- general scaling option at 100% (red mark near the middle of the screenshot)

This problem is true for new documents as well as for documents that have been saved with the Windows version on another computer.
If I scale the document down to around 50%, the content appears in a normal size (or shorter: it's oversized by around 200% :-)).
Funnily enough, the very same behaviour is true for a fresh install of the current stable release (5.2.7) of LibreOffice - other programs are not affected.

What I tried so far:
- remove Application setting in <user profile>/Application Support/OpenOffice
- reinstall OpenOffice
- look for suspicious accessibility options in MacOS's system preferences

At this point, I can only start guessing:
- are there some options for retina screens going wild here (note the 200% zoom, it's a MacBook Air without retina)?
- are there known issues with other installed software (Java: not installed; but GnuCash installed, which comes with GTK)?

Perhaps someone has an idea what else could be checked...

Thanks & best regards,
Running OpenOffice 4.1.3 (Rev. 1761381) on MacOS Sierra 10.12.5
