When using -vo dga, the keyboard is completely locked. I cannot even
switch to a virtual console. I'm using the latest CVS version of MPlayer.
Other video devices like xv work fine.

The bug appears to have been introduced between daily CVS snapshots
20020221 and 20020222. I've used the configure flag --disable-new-input as
someone pointed out its relation to keyboard/DGA problems, but the problem

System specs:
Mandrake 8.0 (heavily updated)
Linux 2.4.18-rc4 (the problem also occurred with 2.4.17)
glibc 2.2.4
gcc 3.0.4
XFree86 4.2.0
binutils 2.11.2
AMD K6-3+
S3 Virge/MX 2MB
