I see this regardless of window size.

previous not quite true ...

the frame does eventually show while in a window - then disappears if parole gets focus

(have 2 workspaces here - rapid mousewheel through workspaces and you can 'see' the frame)

Running from a terminal I get this as soon as a video is chosen.
