   Someone showed my that part of your FAQ

Q: I have problems with icewm and fullscreen xv mode..
A: Known problem, icewm sucks.

   Poor statement. Specially since your code proves that you have never
read the ICCCM (Inter-Client Communication Conventions Manual, 
www.tronche.com/gui/x/icccm/) -- a document describing how window managers
and X clients are expected to interact.

   Well. Fortunatly it's rather easy to fix this bad behaviour of mplayer
(which dreams that it cold predict how a window manager would place it's
windows). See this bug reports to get an idea how to fix mplayer's



PS: Mplayer is a really nice piece of software I recommand everyone who
wants to hear. Would be nice if I wouldn't have to add any comments about
how to make it work with IceWM anymore...
