It's been fixed in SVN.

With newer versions of VIC, you can use the right mouse button on a
video window and select half, original or double size, while preserving
the aspect ratio.

Could you try replacing the vic.exe you are using with the one from
(which uses newer code from SVN) :

The older vic.exe would most likely be found in the VideoConsumerService
or VideoService folders found under something like:
C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Application

I suspect you'll now get a (smaller) black box for small and medium
capture, but should disappear for large MPEG-4 or H.264 capture.

In the past, shift-S, shift-M and shift L would clip, but now it
