I see the same thing and agree with Adam, it's a big usability loss for me
to not be able to switch from one virtual desktop to another, without mplayer
following and being always on top.
With the current fullscreen, the mplayer window is left on the virtual desktop
(viewport, whatever you call it), fullscreened, and does not follow you around.
