this may not be exactly what your looking for, but it works for me.

% history
  537  Xvfb -screen 0 1024x768x16 :1 &
  538  export DISPLAY=:1
  539  xterm -e ~/pkg/bin/gmplayer -ao alsa9 /tmp/Chauffe2.mp3 &

xterm should exit when you quit mplayer, so the only thing left laying
around is Xvfb and you can reuse that (and if you give it small resolution
it shouldn't take up much space).
