Well, I did notice that there were several changes just checked in during
the last two days around running fullscreen/in a window.  Another relevant
data point:  I had overridden the GUI height and width, since I am using a
TV as a monitor, and with overscan I can't see all of the text.  It is fine
for TV viewing, but not for the GUI.  With the overridden height and width
as well as an offset, the GUI fit exactly within the screen as I had it set.
Now, if you set the height and width, you get borders.

Was this an intended side effect of these patches?  Is there some other way
of achieving what I need?  What is anyone else using a TV-out under a Via
6000/9000/10000 doing with respect to overscan and getting this right?
