[Mplayer-users] Video window has right size, but mplayer zooms on left half

Hello people, this is probably my last resort, before i go *kablam*..

I run Debian Unstable on my desktop, works like a charm, but I sure
would like mplayer to work on that too (as well as it runs on my desktop
computer, which is awesome!),

I compiled MPlayer-0.50pre1, ran the binary and viola: mplayer works in
with xv, sdl, x11, fullscreen, the works!

Now I install KDE, and lotsa libraries gets updated, and what happens?
WHen I play an avi movie now, mplayer zooms in on the left halft of the
screen, leaving the right half not shown, because the window opened
isn't big enough. Streching the screen doesn't help, the movie just
zoom's with it, neither does fullscreen..

So I only see the left half of my movies. I'm left with x11 as the only
video mode working, and that takes a lot of CPU and can't stretch..

I'm using the rage 128 (r128) driver for X, and I don't use any virtual
desktop, just pure 1600x1200 (I've tried less, but with no result)

An strace, greping on 'open' gives the output:

open("/etc/ld.so.preload", O_RDONLY)    = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
open("/etc/ld.so.cache", O_RDONLY)      = 3
