Thanks for the quick response, Pierre. My patch is attached below. 
Whenever VLC enters or leaves full-screen mode, it currently causes all 
of the displays on the system (not just the one entering full screen) to 
fade down to black momentarily, even when the preference setting to 
black out the other displays is disabled. My patch checks whether this 
setting is enabled or not before doing the fade, leaving all of the 
other displays unaffected when playback begins.

In the process of testing this on VLC 1.0.5, I also noticed a bug in the 
original code, but I don't have a fix for it yet. This happens 
independent of my patch -- I don't know if it is still applicable to the 
1.1.0 tree, though. If you stop & start playback quickly before VLC has 
finished cleaning up the full screen window from the previous playback, 
it doesn't always redisplay it properly when starting the new playback. 
No video appears, but the audio starts fine. Stopping playback and 
waiting a few seconds for the cleanup to happen before playing again 
fixes the problem.
