[Bf-funboard] lock camera to view also in camera view

there is a function CTRL+B (render border) that only works for camera view (unless I'm missing something?)
maybe you can just use that to detect if your in a normal view and render based on that (or something similar)
unless CTRL+B is used for anything else (but I can't see why) this might be the best solution,and easy to understand
