Uhm .... read the message again maybe? Fullscreen DOES work. NOT 
correctly however. If you search through the messages there was a 
similar thing happening before. This time what happends is, the image 
gets stripped of any black bars and just put in the top corner. So if 
you want to watch a movie, you have it all on top of the screen, but 
about twice the bar size on the bottom. This problem did exist before, 
and it's probably easly fixed by the maintainer of XV (I think it's in 
the xv extension as it was in there the last time).
