Default Re: mplayer hangs when VDPAU decoding is being used

If I get this right, what actually happens is that KDE re-enables desktop effects when the volume bar, SMPlayer control bar or another window is opened while mplayer runs in fullscreen?

If that's the case, it's rather unfortunate. Should I better report this to KWin developers?

EDIT: I disabled the automatic effects suspension in KWin and it really seems to help. Is the nVidia drivers or KWin at fault here?
