[MPlayer-users] "-fs" vs. <ctrl>-<f> (NOVIRUS)

I'm having trouble getting mplayer to behave like I'd like it to.
I have a graphics card with TV-out, which works fine (using the
proprietary nvidia drivers), I've set it up as:
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "MetaModes" "640x480, 640x480; 1600x1200, NULL; 800x600, 800x600"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV"
So X starts up in 640x480, and I manually switch to 1600x1200 for
I can now start playback on some movie, and, with <ctrl>-<f>, switch to
fullscreen mode. Somewhere between X and mplayer, the resolution is
switched to 640x480 magically, and I have the picture on both TV and CRT.
When the movie is finished, the resolution is switched back to
1600x1200 automagically. Perfect.
Now, this doesn't work from the commandline with "-fs", where it stays
with 1600x1200 and I have the picture on the CRT only.
Any idea on how I could have the nice automagic resolution-switching
work from the commandline? I'd really like to be able to watch more
than one movie without getting up from the couch ;)
Or, to phrase the question differently, what's mplayer doing different
between <ctrl>-<f> and "-fs"?
The system is Debian GNU/Linux, "unstable", with mplayer-k7 1.0-pre1.0
and xserver-xfree86 4.1.0-16 (xserver-common 4.2.1-9). I'm using "-vo
sdl" with mplayer.
