Hi Thomas,

I do not see a problem here, since the "not-full-screen-mode" works
exactly as you want. What program do you use to play movies, mplayer?

The other story is that mplayer's window is floating by default

You can add to manageHook:
 ,[ className =? "MPlayer" --> unFloat ]
  where unFloat = ask >>= doF . W.sink
