I'm not sure where to post this, but since it happend on a NetBSD
system I'll start here... My daughter has a Thinkpad running 2.0beta
with XFree86 4.4.0. With the machine connected via a port replicator
to an external monitor, she tried viewing something with mplayer.
The movie showed up on the laptop screen; on the external monitor, all
she saw was a blue square. I didn't even know that was possible!
Any thoughts on what's going on?
