Thanks Georgi!

I'll try that when I get home, but that is almost certainly the 
problem.  I have a force feedback joystick hooked up that always falls 
to one side when it is not in use - this had gotten me before when I 
opened up Tux Racer and tried to play with the keyboard but Tux kept 
going left.... just didn't even think that MPlayer would use the 

If that turns out to be my problem, I will be very happy!
