    Panoramic photos appear pixelated in loupe view with zoom level set to "fill"

      I have a number of panoramic photos I took with my iPhone that I've imported into Lightroom.  When I look at these photos in loupe view, with the zoom level set to "fill", they appear pixelated on-screen.  However, if I switch the zoom level to 1:3 (which is actually zooming out for the particular picture I'm looking at right now), the pixelation goes away, and the photos look beautiful.  (The photo I'm looking at now is 6210x2352.)  In "fill" mode for this photo, the zoom is something between 1:3 and 1:2.  (Not sure how I'd find out the exact numerical zoom level.)  This seems like a bug to me, or at best a profound deficiency in the downsampling algorithm used by Lightroom.  Is this a bug?  Can I do anything to fix this?

       

      Here is my system information:

      Thanks in advance for any help you can lend,
