The mplayer and EWMH problem interested me and i started googling,
landing on an Xmonad page saying the following:

"For browser plugins and most apps, including mplayer floated by manage
hook (as in the default manageHook) the following setup allows normal
toggling of fullscreen. A few mplayer versions are configured to use a
different fullscreen method, but they can be made to work with the
isFullscreen hook by adding a line fstype=none to ~/.mplayer/config, or
using the -fstype=none flag from the command line."

Is there someone who'd like to try this with 5.8.0?
