(Complete, uncut console output missing.)

QuickTime reports the dimension corrected by cropping set in the container
(mov), the line you are referring to in FFmpeg's output reports the codec
dimensions that may be different.
Additionally, FFmpeg does not support cropping set in the mov container;-(

In the case of DAR/SAR, mentioned line still reports the encoded dimensions that
may have to be corrected when displayed (if you find bugs, please report them),
I suppose QuickTime always reports display dimensions.
