mplayer doesn't obey the default layout (I am not floating it in my xmonad.hs).
It starts on a normal size (not fullscreen), then I focus the window and press
'f' to put it fullscreen. The problem is that the mplayer window traverses
the screen borders, as you can see. A small portion of it appears over the
firefox window which is entirely into the other monitor.

I know I could use another player. But I was wondering if this is a known issue
and if there's a workaround or something. The only bit about mplayer in my config

  , className =? "MPlayer"                --> doF (W.shift "mplayer")

To spawn it in a given workspace. As I said, no doFloat nor any equivalent thing
is present. I have tried -just in case- the solution I found for neverwinter in
my other thread, but those issues are clearly unrelated, so it didn't works, as
I hoped it wouldn't.
