Hmmm...unless you have a very narrow window there isn't anything
useful in that corner.

For 99.9% percent having the focused title visible is ok. For the rest
I can maximize the window...

It's app dependent, of course. I only had a similar issue with xmms
(in shadowed style) and solved it learning a couple of key bindings.
Anyway I'm looking for an alternative mp3 player.
