What if you set that to your monitor's desktop resolution?

I guess your graphics driver (or SDL Windows version) is internally
scaling the Hatari window and requesting a larger resolution from your

Hatari definitely doesn't request a resolution like that for the ST mode
without borders, it asks for 640x400 resolution or one that is larger,
but closes to that.

Only if you start with borders on instead of switching them on
when Hatari is already in fullscreen?  (I'm still not completely
sure what exactly your comment meant)

I guess your video driver presents SDL also rotated video modes and
in that case Hatari finds one of the rotated ones to be closest to
the requested Atari resolution that still fits within the 800x600
size preference.

If you never want the rotated modes, disable them from your video
driver settings if it has such a setting.

If you run Hatari from the terminal, you should see output telling
the requested Atari resolution and resolution available to SDL which
Hatari selected.  Is it something where width<height?
