[Interest] iPad mini Retina 2048 x 1536 display resolution issue with QtQuick apps

I just got an iPad mini retina 2048 x 1536 for developing QtQuick apps.

If I set the width and height of my top-level QML Rectangle to 2048 x 1536, it overflows the screen by 2x in each dimension.  So it's seems like there's a mistaken doubling of pixel dimensions for rendering for this iPad model.

I tested this iPad with its built-in Safari to see that some larger google images were rendering at the proper pixel dimensions, and they are rendering correctly.  2048 x 1536 images were not overflowing the display at 2x.

Any one else observe this?   I didn't see it in JIRA.  I will enter a bug if that's the right thing to do.  Maybe Qt5 needs to do something special to address the iPad mini Retina as 2048x 1536.
