Thanks alot for committing this Bruce, as this was a problem of mine
also, now, finally I can turn on overscan on my viaslice output, and yet
downsize the gui, and have fullscreen tv, instead of black borders at
two edges.

Although I have to agree with Isaac on his point with beeing able to
specify the dimesions and position of the video output window.
