Great... (I'm running trunk).

I think I understand now (and thanks for taking the time to explain).
I can go back to any aspect-correct DisplaySize I want, because MythTV
isn't currently using the DPI (since I'm on trunk), and I've just be
unawares of that.  Or like you said, use the DPI option, because I'm
pretty sure I am using square pixels.  1360x768 with 1:1 pixel mapping
on my LCD.
