smplayer window creeps up the screen when pause/resumed by spacebar

Bug Description

When smplayer is playing a video in a window it can be paused and resumed by pressing the spacebar. Stragely, each time the spacebar is pressed to pause or resume, the window creeps a few pixels up and to the left of the screen. Eventually it reaches the top left corner, where it stays. The effect occurs with all types of video (flv, mp4, wmv).

My smplayer is the version that comes with Ubuntu 14.04:

Version: 14.3.0
Using Qt 4.8.6 (compiled with Qt 4.8.6)
Using MPlayer2 2.0-701-gd4c5b7f-2ubuntu2

It isn't very serious from a user perspective but it says something about the testing that has been done and may give a wrong impression to those considering using Linux.

Do you have the option "Stay on top -> while playing" enabled?
I think this is the only option which can cause this issue.

What window manager are you using?

Hi,

I couldn't find the option setting, (in a bit of a rush right now) but
it does stay on top if playing, not if paused.

I'm using ubuntu 14.04 as it comes i.e. unity and whatever window
manager is standard.
