The only way right now is to open Arma2.cfg and set to Render_W=Resolution_W and Render_H=Resolution_H. This also seems to eliminate some jagginess.

Pff! well noticed, thanks for the tip!
I can confirm that ArmA2 looks now MUCH better with this change!

I can confirm this.

To explain more clearly: You can drag the bar to a position that shows as 100% but it gives something like 90-120% of your native screen resolution, because a slider is not accurate (and the % it shows is rounded).

The bad part is when at 100% actual is lower - then it's under-rendering and stretching screen to your native resolution. Result: jagfest.

Is that only window problem or full screen too?

Are there repro steps to measure the change?
Screenshot/videos to illustrate?

This is similar for full screen and window mode.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Options menu->Graphics->Advanced
2. Move fill rate slider to anything but 100%
3. Move fill rate slider back to 100%
4. Apply changes and exit Arma
5. Open Arma2.cfg - you will notice Render_ and Resolution_ variables not matching.

1.02 has the "3D resolution" list instead of a slider.
