Damn! I had that very same problem, got it fixed, and now I can't
remember what I did to get there. Nasty for you, nasty for when I want
to redo an installation at some point...
I remember that it was either Xine or Mplayer that uses some "overlay"
or something, and doesn't put it back when its done. (Vague and quite
possibly very wrong - I know).
I've searched around in my installation and can't seem to find what I'm
doing to get it to work...
Was this it?:
config file ( ~username/.xine/config ) - look for this line:
Uncomment it, and change it to 1.
I *do* remember that it was some config or environment tweak I had to do
and then it worked fine.
So this may not be a lot of help, but it may ease your mind to know that
it is (was? :-D) a known problem and that it can be fixed. :-D
