On a similar note, I've noticed that when using OSS audio output 
mplayer's internal volume control appears to have absolutely no effect. 
It works fine with ao=esd, but ESD has had problems for me in areas not 
related to mplayer - and in a particular series of AVI files the maximum 
volume I can achieve with ESD running is too quiet to hear clearly, 
whereas with OSS output the available volume ranges are closer to what 
I'd expect.

I didn't think of this as a bug, just as a limitation of the output 
method, but I may have been wrong.
