Ok, so this behavior is known. By the way, something similar happens with mplayer from time to time (not always, strangely). It can easily be seen, because then mplayer doesn't have a border.

Is there a hacking magician out there who knows how to fix this?

By the way, just a comparision, monsterwm is based on - among others - dwm and it doesn't show this behavior. So maybe its sourcecode shows the answer. I'll ask the maintainer, if he has an idea.
