Yes, that worked, I was using the Ater skin. Thanks for pointing that out.
Since I was already debugging mplayer to see where was the problem, I
managed to see that the problem was just one file of the skin I was using:
pos.png, by replacing it with another one from other skin, the problem was
gone, and I was able to continue using that skin. Probably the other skins
that doesn't work have a similar solution.
