OK, I try to explain it.

I enable the gui in the config-file and mplayer is also compiled with

I start mplayer and both the gui and the video-ouput comes up to the
screen. But the video-output does not have any border, icons to
minimize and close etc. I can drag and drog by clicking normally in
the window. The context-menu does also work.

So it seem that Sawfish (1.0.1) does not like it.

Using Afterstep, Enlightenement, Ice, twm or Windowmanager is does
work: They all provide the 'windows-stuff'.

Quite wired, isn't it?
