Subject: question about 35mm finder

I have a question about the old 35mm brightline finder.  When looking
through it you see:
				|	    |
				|	    |
				|	    |

Seeing this you would think that the dashed line represents "parallax
compensation" for shooting up close.  However, when comparing the
field-of-view of the above to the 35mm brightlines of, say, an M6, it
appears that it is the only the larger of the 2 rectangles above which
corresponds to a 35mm field-of-view.  An SLR with 35mm lens also bears
this out.  I was prompted to compare because the 35mm brightline image
looked too "square".

Does anyone out there know what's going on here?
