I'm not sure if it indeed is a bug, or is just a failure of
understanding xmonad.  Could someone verify this?

I think that the use of `adjust' in line 63 of file
Operations.hs should put any floating window in the center
of a screen if it is larger than the size of the screen.
But it's not doing that right now.

There is also a strange behaviour of executing

    mplayer -fs

it actually results in three different positioning of the
mplayer window.

    1. Perfect.  No boarders appear.

    2. Off 1 pixel.  Top and left window boarders appear.

    3. Disappeared.  You just can't see the window.  I don't
       know how to debug it, yet.

Not sure if it's just a mplayer bug or xmonad's.

    <\     * (__
    */\      <
