One thing I forgot to mention in my previous post.

Notice how the window is more 'square' and looks more like the original 
Atari.  When using Stella in software mode (and z26 as well, I 
believe), the original horizontal resolution of approx. 160 pixels is 
simply doubled.  That makes the window much wider than it should be.

Have a look at the previous 2 images, and then compare to the following, 
which is from Stella in software mode:

The 3rd one has a horizontal aspect of '2', which means that the 
horizontal resolution is doubled from the original framebuffer.  The 
first two have an aspect of '1.6', which looks more authentic (at least 
to me, anyway).
