OK.  Some more information.

I get fullscreen with SDL on the second head of my G400 if I play an
"asf" file (some sort of windows codec file) but I get the above
symptoms when I try to play an mpeg file.  Here is the output of
mplayer when trying to play the mpeg file:

Anything look suspicious in there?
