It actually doesn't; the fact that the preview thumbnail is correct is 
the result of two bugs that cancel each other out :-) : (a) the 
thumbnail is always generated at 4:3 regardless of the program's aspect 
ratio, and (b) in the frontend's GUI, all images are scaled more in the 
X direction than in Y when displaying to a 16:9 screen.  Try MythWeb 
sometime -- you'll see the thumbnails for 16:9 programs are incorrect.

This is actually on my list of things to look at; perhaps I'll get to it 
  soonish, and if I do I'll take a look at the other things you noted.
