I am using MPlayer 1.0rc2-4.1.2 on ubuntu. Couple of days ago I faced a
problem in MPayer. OSD messages appear on the scrren, but they do not
disappear. To solve this problem, I had to recompile MPlayer and after
that it worked.

I reviewd the source code and I think this situation occurs in
get_osd_msg fucntion. In this function there is a possible execution
path that "diff" variable get 0 value. in this case, msg->time will
never decreases and the message will never removed from the osd stack.
The main root of this problem can be clock unstability in ubuntu (I
think), which mean clock goes backward.

If anybody has any idea about this problem, I would be happy to hear it.
