Default VLC: Make the resizing stop!!!

Ok, so I went and broke it somehow.
VLC's developers finally added the feature to make it stop resizing the window every single time it opened a new video - or with a DVD, at every single chapter.
All was well, until I installed v1.0.5 today. That behavior went away, even though I told the installer to keep my preferences.
Got rid of that, and put v1.0.3 back. It won't work now - every time a new video or chapter starts, the window resizes itself to the native size of the video.
Already tried:
- Preferences set to Advanced
- Video -> Set Video Width/Height to -1 (also tried 0)
- Checked "Video Auto Scaling"
- Unchecked "Video Auto Scaling"

I tried all these combinations, but nothing seems to have any effect. (And I restarted VLC after changing any settings, as changing them without doing so seems to do absolutely nothing.

So what gives? What magical little setting did I forget that is allowing VLC to resize the window at will?

Oh, and it also wiped out all my hotkey settings.
"Keep preferences" - doesn't seem to do a whole heck of a lot.

EDIT: Why it was in the easiest place. Video section? Nah, of course not, that'd be too obvious.
Interface -> Main Interfaces -> Qt -> Resize interface to the native video size.
"Homeopathy is what happened when snake oil salesmen discovered that water is cheaper than snake oil."

's is not the universal way of making anything plural.
