Bug#617294: mplayer: Does not keep aspect ratio when maximizing

Package: mplayer
Version: 2:1.0~rc4.dfsg1-2
Severity: normal

Making mplayer full-screen by hitting f or running with -fs keeps the
video aspect ratio.  Resizing the window also keeps the video aspect
ratio.  However, maximizing the window stretches the video and ignores
the aspect ratio.  mplayer should instead scale the video to the largest
size that fits in the maximized window, and then center the resulting
scaled video, as it does in full-screen mode.
