I read that "This is due to MPEG-2 video format, which requires the number
of coded luma pixels to be divisible by 16".
Indeed 1080 cannot be divided by 16, so the inner structure must be 1088,
although the "usable" (displayed) height will be 1080.
So I don't think it's a bug, I think that's just the way it is.
