1680 as well as other resolutions appear not to support widescreen properly.

I'm with you on this. It's just pillarboxing, which is "normal" when 4:3 resolutions are viewed in widescreen. Better, I think anyways, to have it pillarbox, than to lose portions of the picture on a widescreen otherwise. Still, the developers could have made it support widescreen resolutions without the pillarboxing- why they didn't is beyond me. Here's some basic info. on pillarboxing, letterboxing, and windowboxing:
