Not quite.

1. My window manager (fluxbox) starts.
2. I then manually start xine with:
xine --no-splash -Bfpqg --hide-gui -r anamorphic -V 
xv -Dtvtime:method=Greedy2Frame,cheap_mode=0,pulldown=0,use_progressive_frame_flag=1 
 --post vdr_video --post vdr_audio vdr://tmp/vdr-xine/stream#demux:mpeg_pes
xine-ui starts fine with no black bars
3. I kill the xine process (above), or hit CTRL-C (either)
4. manually start xine 2. above
xine-ui starts, but the single black 1cm bar at the top of the fullscreen 
xine is visible

any more thoughts?
