Sorry, there is a misunderstanding regarding what is working. Scaling works
fine as long as it is done after the movie starts.

If I start mplayer, and then click the 'maximise' button on the window, it
maximises just fine.

However, if I configure my window manager (kwin) to automatically maximise
mplayer windows on start, they are not maximised, but instead snap back to
the default size when the movie starts.

A long long time ago, this used to work properly.
