some wallpapers are squared server-side

This is possibly the strangest thing to me. This image still has the square
frame but I think is actually squared server-side (that's why it has two
previews). The second preview is also squared by squeezing it into the frame.

My current theory is that the store (randomly?) generates previews that are
squared and the client always assumes it gets square input. That too seems
strange though. Why would you there be strain on the server to generate the
squares and then send useless bytes to the client? And I mean, if that is the
case it's still nonesense because that last wallpaper I posted has 2 previews
and one is wrong regardless since it hasn't a square aspect ratio.

It turns out this was a serverside issue (see the linked report, which has now
been closed). Ronald fixed this by changing the default crop so the data now
matches the request. Thanks for trawling through it and supplying screenshots
and whatnot!

Thumbnails still squares

OK, we're close! I can confirm that as of today, the actual full-size
screenshots in Discover have their correct aspect ratios. But the thumbnails
are still small and square (see attached screenshot). Is this on KNS, or
Discover?
