Same here. It started with MPlayer-0.90rc4 already. I happens only
when the gui is active. To be sure that no bad settings are lying
around, I removed the whole .mplayer directory and started from
scratch. I am using the patch below now. I assume it is ugly, will
fry your machine and kill your cat but it works and I don't have
the time to dig around in the GUI code :-).

One of the MPlayer-0.90rc4 fixes was:

Maybe it has to do with it...
