[PD] GEM mapping units to pixels

Setting a 1:1 perspective tells GL to make x=y in units even though the
ratio is 1.33:1 in the display.  By not doing this rectangle 1 1 would be
drawn to match the 4:3 ratio of the window (although the default in GEM is
x=y so you have to change it to something other than 1:1 to have this

The test2 patch resets some of the ratios to 1:1 so the perspective corrects
that back to fit the window, otherwise the square is taller than it is wide.

Hopefully I didn't make this more confusing.
