Hi ~d,

Thanks for trying to reproduce my results, I really appreciate it!

Oh, are you running mplayer in virtualbox? Can you reproduce this problem

I realize now that I was unclear, sorry about that - no, mplayer and
virtualbox are two separate examples, I run mplayer directly (and let
xmonad handle the window). Same with virtualbox, xmonad is running on the
host and the guest OS is Windows XP.

What do you mean with "nothing happens"? Doesn't mplayer fullscreen work at
all? Can you get e.g. VLC to do fullscreen? I have the same problem there.
I can also reproduce it with flashplayer, but that one's a bit different
since by default Flash will exit fullscreen when it loses focus.

With best regards,
