Ok, I tried that, but never ran into a problem. Actually, the steps to
reproduce the difficulty I remember having are:

mplayer -fs <multiple files>
and then skip to the next few files. Sooner or later there would be a
black screen, and pressing f twice fixed it.

Either way, I can't get anything to go wrong, so I guess that with
XFree86 and the NVidia binary drivers, it works all right.
