I see what you mean and I agree it can produces bad results when 
recording video.
At the AVI level, it's not possible to have different x/y resolution in 
the same file, so the solution would be to have a larger screen where 
the atari's screen is centered.

It looks similar to the fullscreen mode when video/freq is not changed 
and we keep the same desktop resolution. Perhaps Eero could add this 
functionnality by extending the '--desktop' option ?
