Not seeing that here. What's your config, what color depth, do you run the
compositor, etc. ?
Comment 2 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2005-09-22 17:10:41 CEST
In case, can you upgrade to the latest from SVN?
Comment 3 Alexander Toresson 2005-09-22 18:03:16 CEST
Well, the latest revision (17761) didn't contain any changes from revision 17710.
This is my config, or at least, what is relevant:

* Xorg 6.8.2
* ATI Mobile Radeon X300, using fglrx driver
* Gfx mode: 1680x1050, 24 bit colour depth (may as well be 32bpp, of course)
* No composite

An interesting thing I noted is that it does only happen in mplayer when you
select the x11 output plugin, and not with the other output plugins I usually
use (xv and gl). The reason I noticed it is because x11 is the default.

Also, I managed to reproduce this problem with frozen-bubble too, and that is
interesting, because both it and qemu uses sdl. Also, mplayer depends on sdl, so
it may well be that the x11 mplayer plugin uses sdl.

So I tested two other sdl games, chromium and glob2. And both had the same problem.

And this makes mentioning the version of sdl not pointless. It is version
1.2.7+1.2.8cvs20041007-5.3 on my system. And I also checked the debian bts for
bugs that may affect this, but found none.

Ok, reproductible. I know why.
Comment 5 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2005-09-23 20:09:59 CEST
Revision 17792 fixes it.
Comment 6 Alexander Toresson 2005-09-23 20:16:18 CEST
Yes it did.
Comment 7 Jasper Huijsmans editbugs 2005-12-21 09:34:21 CET
Fixed according to the commments.
