Mplayer crashed with a sig11. I didnt take it serious, just made
a note that i should look what happend until i realized that
mga_vid was left open. This means now, that i cant watch anything
neither with mga nor xv and i also cant unload mga_vid because
MOD_DEC_USE_COUNT wasn't called.

I think that was the cause. I played with the window and musst
have hit height 0. Mplayer crashed, but everthing else still
works Ok.

There isn't a possibility to force mga_vid to decrement the usage counter ?

BTW: This isn't a formal bug report as i'm still using the
mga_vid from 0.50 and i remember some changes afterwards.
