Two more bugs that i never filed:

IMHO, media player looks very weird when all 3 elements (border,menu,
controls) are hidden.  It becomes either 3pixels high or 16pixels high
-- it depends.
To make it 3pixels high, remove the frame/border first.  to make it
16pixels high, remove the border/frame last.

Another inconsistency, depending on the order that the elements are
removed, you may or may not be be able to click MediaPlayer and Alt+Fx
to another workspace. It seems if border/frame is the last to be
removed, you cannot.  if border/frame is not the last to be removed,
you can.

Out of curiosity, why? for keyboard navigation or some other reason?
