I know it has some disadvantages, but I think that
1) gl and gl2 behaved like that even before the patch, so at least it
makes things consistent
2) the old code did not behave so well with -fixed-vo and playing in
fullscreen multiple files, IIRC if you switched back from fullscreen on
the second file the window would have size and aspect of the first one.

I guess it would be nice to be able to specify to mplayer how it should
behave in these cases (e.g. only change window size when switching movie
but not position - which looks bad in some cases - or keep window center
the same as before etc.), because I do not know of a behaviour that will
satisfy everyone.
Suggestions welcome though.
Until then, -geometry will have to do.
