Hmm. Very interesting....

Still, you should upgrade to 1.0pre1 or the latest cvs, for three
1. Your problem might have been fixed by now (I've never seen gmplayer
do that, but I almost always use mplayer instead).
2. mplayer 0.9x is several months old. If any of the developers are
going to fix a problem, they'll fix it in current cvs (for 1.0). So, you
probably need to demonstrate for sure that 1.0 has a problem before
anybody wants to reproduce the issue.
3. There are lots of nice new features in mplayer that have been added
since 0.9x, anyway. :)

Maybe somebody knows something about your problem and what I've said is
moot, but reason #3 still stands.
