These settings use the max width of the G1 screen while maintaining the ratio of your source.

Nothing odd about the way Handbrake's strict anamorphic works, you've simply failed to read the documentation.

If you want Handbrake to stop switching the file suffix to m4v, then simply switch off chapter markers.
