I have never used it before, so I gave it a try:

mplayer ~/movies/TheTwoTowers_fs.l.mov -nofs -geometry 0:0

and... nothing, window is positioned as usual (center of the screen) :-(

The problem is made by the "nofs" option (I have fs=yes in config).
When I run it without -nofs window is positioned as it should be (of
course, after fullscreen change).
