This is, we believe, done on purpose. Previously, the menu was sized exactly to the icons and people complained they couldn't find other menu items. This was because they didn't know there were more because there was no visual indicator. By making the menu size slightly larger, this allows users to see that there are more icons they can swipe to.
Personally, I liked the pre-v3.5 menus (or pre-v3. something) which used the standard iOS "dots" to indicate which page of how many you were on. The springboard and lots of apps still use this, so I don't know why Waze can't. It was a very clear and understandable indicator, and allowed the menu to be correctly sized.
