Sounds like an upstream issue.

Seems like it might be fixed but unreleased. I can't even find the latest code, though.

I can also reproduce this with smplayer 19.10.0 and GNOME on Wayland, but not on Xorg.

Reverting mpv to 1:0.29.1-11 or using Xorg allows 19.10.0 to work fine.

Edited on 30 Oct to add that there's also some relation to Wayland.

It still exists on Wayland.
