Mplayer Makes Terminal Cursor Idle

Hi,
A weird problem just came up recently.  I would start mplayer from the a terminal (eg. xterm), and after I close mplayer the cursor in the terminal stays idle when I type anything.  I could still issue commands and new lines still work, but whatever I type won't appear.  It's kind of like typing password in command line.  This happens with many terminal emulators (xterm, mrxvt, gnome-terminal, etc.)  Any idea what's wrong?

Thanks!

Will

I've noticed that too, but I don't know what's wrong. My workaround is to stop it from the terminal (Ctrl+C) instead of closing the mplayer window.

Re: Mplayer Makes Terminal Cursor Idle

Does pressing 'q' or 'ESC' in the mplayer window result in a clean exit?
