Oh, I must have missed that.

This indicates an interaction issue. I cannot test this myself as my
window manager (metacity) doesn't support this. Is there a simpler
testcase other than running kwin to test this functionality? If not, I
fear some kwin expert needs to have a look at the mplayer source code
and write a patch.

Please note that I've co-assigned it to the kwin package, that has been
removed from stable. I reckon that kwin has been merged to some other
package, please reassign as appropriate if you know what package that is.
