I'm running into a strange issue with ListPlot.

I'm trying to plot some data with particular values for PlotRange, PlotLabels, and AspectRatio. However, if I enforce the desired values for PlotLabels and AspectRatio (as in plt1 below), Mathematica 12.2 is changing the output's PlotRange. Yet, if I enforce only one of PlotLabels or AspectRatio (as in plt2 or plt3 below), it returns the correct PlotRange. Is there a way to simultaneously specify all three correctly?

I've attached a minimal working example.

data = Table[{x, 1}, {x, -2., 2.}];
plt1 = ListPlot[
  data
  , PlotRange -> {{-2., 2.}, {0., Sqrt[2.]}}
  , PlotLabels -> "PlotLabels and AspectRatio"
  , AspectRatio -> .353553
  ]

PlotRange is incorrect

plt2 = 
 ListPlot[
  data
  , PlotRange -> {{-2., 2.}, {0., Sqrt[2.]}}
  , PlotLabels -> "PlotLabels"
  ]

The PlotRange is correct

plt3 = 
 ListPlot[
  data
  , PlotRange -> {{-2., 2.}, {0., Sqrt[2.]}}
  , AspectRatio -> .353553
  , PlotLabel -> "AspectRatio"
  ]

The PlotRange is correct

Thanks in advance!

PlotRangePadding is the option you are not controlling. Set it to None to get the control you seek.

data = Table[{x, 1}, {x, -2., 2.}];
plt1 = ListPlot[data, PlotRange -> {{-2., 2.}, {0., Sqrt[2.]}}, 
  PlotLabels -> "PlotLabels and AspectRatio", AspectRatio -> .353553, 
  PlotRangePadding -> None]

enter image description here

Set to larger values if desired (see docs).
