Description of problem:
When I'm watching a movie using mplayer, I suddenly want to do something else,
but I don't want to stop the movie.So I press "f" in the keyboard to switch back
from fullscreen mode. I find that the mplayer window disappears, and I can't
switch back to fullscreen mode anymore.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose gnome desktop environment in gdm and login.
2. Play a movie using mplayer in fullscreen mode.
3. Press the key "f" to switch to normal size screen.
4. Try to press the key "f" to switch back to fullscreen.

Actual Results:  The mplayer is still running, but the movie window disappears

Expected Results:  The mplayer switch back to fullscreen mode, and I continue to
watch movie.

Additional info:

This problem only happens in gnome 2, but not in kde 3, which are both from
redhat 7.3.93. I'm not sure this is the problem of gtk2, but it is surely a
problem of gnome 2.

well, at least 50% chance mplayer is busted. But I'll look at it and diagnose

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-24 22:27:31 UTC
fixed in mplayer was doing something weird, but something that
should have worked.

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-10-13 10:47:59 UTC
This bug still exists in redhat 8.0

I'm going through bugs assigned to me and attempting to clean some of the older,
fixed ones up.

This bug hasn't changed in over a year old now.  Are you still seeing the problem?
