Seems something related to some of the drivers you're using. NVidia card
Since you can telnet your machine, the kernel (and a lot of the user
space programs with it) is up&running.
Try killing the session where you run mplayer (maybe the entire X
server) from the telnet session.
A proper bugreport might prevent Andy's pressure from going too high :-)
