Sorry for the poor terminology.  However, this gets back to my initial 
problem.  The geometry option does not seem to work as you describe when 
using the gl or gl2 drivers, but does when using the directx driver.

Just in case my syntax is a problem, here are two command lines

This one works as expected, starting at the far edge of the first 
(1600x1200) monitor, with essentially all the window on the second monitor
mplayer.exe -vo gl2  -geometry 1600:0 filename.avi

This one, with the x coordinate increased to 1610 pixels, displays the 
window at 0:0 coordinates on the first monitor, essentially ignoring the 
geometry option.
mplayer.exe -vo gl2  -geometry 1610:0 filename.avi

Would you expect that this is a regression of some sort and that an 
earlier version may work ( this is r28311 )?  or is it likely a bug in 
that particular driver?

In any case, what should I try next to correct this?
