Incorrect export to FLV from DV PAL Widescreen video

Flash export from widescreen video (DV PAL Widescreen) is incorrect - the image is still anamorph even though the format (or mplayer which I used for testing) does not store requested aspect ratio. I think other exports may have the same problem too.

I would make my own render settings, but I was unable to find any information how to rescale during render (see also my forum post

I am using Kdenlive from SVN:

To make your own renderer settings, select the encoder you want to modify and copy all the parameters that appear under the codecs list (see screenshot). Then go to the "Custom" tab and click the "New" button. Give the name you want, enter the extension (flv for flash movies), and then paste the parameters you copied into the "Parameters" field.

Then, you can play with the settings, but unluckily there is no real doc for these parameters. To correct the aspect ratio for your flash movies, you can add a parameter like this:
at the end of the line.

Then you can export using your custom encoding parameters. Hope it helps, you will need to make some tests.

Unfortunately aspect_ratio made it even worse -- the image has now shrinked in width, but stayed the same in height. Which is the opposite of what I expected. I even tried to reverse the ratio and used 9:16 (just in case), but that produced the same result.
