I don't see that. The real problem is that the Qt4 UI window keeps the "above" 
WM state even when going to fullscreen mode. It should not as it does not 
contain the video at that point. Afterall the option is called --video-on-top.

That looks like a bug more than a feature to me. Now the Qt4 UI cannot be 
selected in the task bar when in fullscreen mode.

Of course, we should give the window a title, but that's an orthogonal issue.

Also this change seems to confuse some window managers, although I cannot 
reproduce it here (bug #3678).
