I have the aspect override set -- but -- with either full or half zoom, the
horizontal edges get truncated past the screen.

I have found a solution -- I have to *not* set the override.  For example, I
have to have aspect override on *off*, then hit W twice to get to full zoom.

It's a real pain (for my particular setup).

Can you think of any easier ways to do this?  I don't want to turn off the
aspect override, or we'll start getting burnin (again).
