16:9 pan crop w/still not the same size as 16:9 project video?

Does that make sense??

My project size and my media size is DV widescreen, (1.2121 pixel size), on my time line...
If a take a still photo and place it on the line above and use the pan crop to make a 16:9 still, its slightly narrower than the video clip...
When my video cuts to the still, I can still see a narrow strip of video on either side of the still picture....
Its OK on a tv due to the overscan, but no good for web delivery...

My problem or a Vegas problem?

Or do I need to post a screen shot before any understands?

Here's what I would do instead:

1. Drop the still image onto the timeline
2. Open Pan/Crop, right-click the image on the Pan/Crop screen, and choose "Match Output Aspect"
