Thanks. Ident showed me that there is an MPlayer entry, so I finally found it 
(and I would probably find it much sooner, if I tried the search with capital 
P and M... ;-) So now I have the window decorations.

However, here it does not work for me. I have wharf at layer 1 (and I also 
tried 0 and -1) and mplayer at layer 2, 3 or 4 but when I maximize mplayer 
window (well, it is not maximizing; I press "f" to go to full screen mode), 
wharf is still uncovered. I also tried to set it to AllowCover, but it did 
not help. Neither with mplayer, nor with imagemagick.

Just to clear it up a bit, Wharf is the only module causing me problems, 
probably because I do not use Winlist and Pager is swallowed in Wharf.

So, what now?
