[MPlayer-users] gmplayer fullscreen doesn't cover the whole screen

since I upgraded to the newest MPlayer version (also CVS) I have 
problems with the fullscreen mode within gmplayer. The Player doesn't 
fill the whole screen. There are always about 50 pixels at the bottom 
where you see the background of the window manager. The rest of the 
screen is perfectly filled and the aspect ratio is ok. It's like i.e. 
the "windows-bar" at the bottom that is always visible, but only that I 
dont' have windows or anything like a taskbar. But the problem is only 
in 'gmplayer', not in 'mplayer'. I tried all video-drivers: no 
influence. I tried diefferent Skins: nothing changed. I restarted the 
WindowMaker and the X-Server: nothing changed. Starting the program with 
'-zoom', '-fs' and/or '-geometry xxx' didn't help. If I launch it per 
SSH on another PC it works fine and covers the whole screen (the screen 
of the "SSH-machine").
So what should I try or do?
