Maybe this has something to do with the updated
qt version, so KDE needs to be rebuild against this
I think that's a vlc related issue. I am having same problems in Arch. Will ask there about it and let you folks know if I get any suggestions.
Make sure the full-screen video is focused (i.e. click on it), then hit Alt+F3. Under Advanced, enable Fullscreen. It's a bit of a pain to do that every time you full-screen a video, but it works.
Well atleast it works. The development version of vlc fixes this issue so you can compile that or use this as a temporary fix.
