Heyho Anselm,

Basically mplayer needed the setting to be inverse to the setting for all other
clients to behave how I wanted. I think I wanted mplayer to fill the whole tile
it was assigned to (producing black bars top+bottom or left+right), but could
only achieve that by enabling resizehints for mplayer. However that would also
introduce unwanted behavior for other programs, so I wrote this patch. Nowadays
I use mpv instead of mplayer and could not reproduce this issue with mpv. I
didn't and don't have time to investigate if that was/is a bug in mplayer, so if
you think it could be useful in other cases, apply it, if you think it was just
a bug in mplayer, leave it out.
