G1000 pop out panel is rendered with black columns on either side

Brief description of the issue:

When either the G1000 NXi MFD or PFD are popped out into their own window, the instrument is rendered with black bars on either side of it instead of using the instrument’s native 1024x768 resolution. This was a regression introduced with the 2nd SU10 update after a different pop out bug was addressed that prevented the game’s “multiple window controls” from being clicked. This causes the instrument to become misaligned with physical buttons when the popped-up panel is moved to a secondary monitor w/ physical G1000 controls.

Provide Screenshot(s)/video(s) of the issue encountered:

This is the incorrect rendering with pillarbox columns. Note the oversized non-client area controls, and that the lower portions of the G1000 UI are truncated in the window:

.

This is how the popped-out window should look when rendered correctly. Note the smaller client-area controls and lack of pillar box bars:

Detailed steps to reproduce the issue encountered:

  1. Using RALT+click pop out the G1000 PFD.
  2. BUG - Observe black columns on either side of the popped-out PFD

Adding to the original bug - it seems that when both the MFD and PFD are popped out, whichever was the first to be popped out is rendered into a window that is smaller than the other even though both instruments are the exact same size (1024*768). I think this causes MSFS’s pillar box rendering logic to kick in and cause the unexpected rendering.

Provide extra information to complete the original description of the issue:

  1. Use RALT + click to pop out both the G1000’s PFD and MFD.
  2. Move each instrument into its own window.
  3. BUG - Observe that the first instrument to be popped out is presented in a Window that is much smaller than the Window in which the other instrument is presented.
