mplayer/X were kind enough to give us rapid feedback. Last night I
started mplayer and X was clobbered, just like before. This bug is still
out there. It really seems to be mplayer that does it for me. I usually
use xine, but I currently don't remember ever having this problem with
xine (though it has been a while, so I might be forgetting).
