External display slideshow, retina MacBook and Lightroom 5

When using a MacBook Pro retina and dual displays with a external monitor, the slideshow it displays at a very small size, making it unusable.

Also, if images are flagged during the slideshow, often the slideshow moves straight to a blank screen. I was using 'P' to flag images and head to continually exit and restart the slideshow as a result. This behaviour has changed since Lightroom 4.

I'm using a 15" MBP Retina with a 24" external and the photos on the external are the right size. What could be different about our machines? You don't have the external monitor set to mirror the laptop monitor?
