Original points appear to be fixed.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding what ivanovic means by distortion but I don't see anything obviously wrong using Pandora theme on low resolution either. Perhaps this has been fixed by 1.13.1+dev?

Not fixed in the latest git version on the pandora. That is here is what I have observed when starting the first scenario of Liberty:

1) Normal startup with pandora theme: minimap distorted and right and bottom edge, bottom edge seems to not be initialized correctly, some "gray" mass is shown until I move the screen a little, then it gets really "weired".
2) Switched to windows 1024x768 with same theme: same distortion.
3) While in windowed switched to default theme: no distortion.
4) Switch "default" theme to fullscreen 800x480: no distortion.
5) Still in windowed switch to Pandora theme: distortion as in 1 and 2.

So it seems to have to do with changing the size of the minimap area and it not being initialized accordingly. I hope this helps.

I committed two bug fixes for the off-map area and the minimap resize issue. I'm not convinced it fixes the Pandora issue we observed at the FOSDEM. Ivanovic please test whether all is well on the Pandora now.

There are various occurrences of this:

In the editor, on maps that are smaller than the viewport, the off-map areas aren't cleared and display whatever used to be there.

On the pandora, the minimap can be too small and the off-map areas will be filled with something that is related to the actual minimap. The area to the right tends to be a copy of the minimap, while area below is much less predictable. Units do show in the right place as they're drawn from a different place in the code.

A similar minimap thing can be reproduced on a regular computer with the following procedure:
1) Start the test scenario with a small windowed resolution (800x480 recommended)
2) Go fullscreen and notice the minimap isn't resized, but now occupies a small part of its canvas
3) Click the minimap. It resizes.
