Font Rendering Problem w/ Parallels 9 Mavericks Retina Display

I am starting to transition to a Macbook Pro as a full time dev computer. I am having trouble with the font sizing of the console output, online tree, debug window, etc. I have double checked fonts and sizes in the preferences, but they all appear correct.

Does anyone have any ideas? I am new to the whole MacOS + Virtualized Windows thing. See image below for example.

    Parallels is seeing the native resolution of the Retina display (2880x1800) and rendering the workspace, debug, etc. graphics accordingly. I'm doing the same thing (on purpose) so I can get more information within the hi-res real estate.

    On my machine, however, if I set the resolution of the LCD in Mavericks to be 1440x900, the fonts for workspace and debug adjust larger accordingly. I'm not sure why yours isn't. The main difference I can think of is that I'm running Parallels 8 and you're on 9.
