Found this old thread and forgot that I discovered my problem a few weeks ago, 
so thought I would post in-case it helps anyone else.

I was Copy Files including an info.plist because I had some special permissions 
needed for the app: THIS was the problem. 

Normally I would compile the app, then grab the newly packaged info.plist to 
modify the version/build number and save that back to be included in the app. 
<> for details]
It was the old plist from pre-Storyboard build that was wreaking havoc. There 
was some property that was being copied in addition to the new Storyboard 
properties, but that old property was somehow dictating the device dimensions 
and reporting them wrong. As soon as I recompiled once WITHOUT including an old 
info.plist in the Copy Files for the Standalone, everything rendered in a 
reasonable manner.

YMMV, but this was an oddity that eluded me for far too many billable hours.
