How about vo x11? What if you add a expand=osd=1 filter to make that
one render the OSD?
Most likely this is related to -spuaa, try different values
for that.

That's an option, otherwise you could try if you can reproduce with any
of the PGS samples at samples.mplayerhq.hu, could only find one quickly:
Also ftp://upload.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/incoming is only accessible to
developers (though it's a good idea to name the file in a way that indicates
it should not be made public).
