Just thought a more detailed description of what goes wrong could help.
(If you want/need photos i could take some)

me at home:~/mplayer file.avi

After pressing F it goes fullscreen, but only the upper half of the screen
is filled with the movie. The lower half is blue. (Looks like 16:9)

In order to view it in 'real' fullscreen i have to press C 2-5 times depending
on the file im playing.

I know it sounds very weird, but its very annoying because mplayer used
to be really comfortable for any media and now its quite the opposite.

Back to my question: Is there a ./configure switch to turn the cycling
completely off?
If you need additional info like logs/output/screenshots just tell me.

Any help would be appreciated.
