Version: 2.0 (using 4.2.2 (KDE 4.2.2), Kubuntu packages)
OS: Linux (i686) release 2.6.28-11-generic
When I am in full-screen mode and click "Volume" to show the volume slide, it shows a somewhat annoying behaviour: As soon as my mouse leaves the main menu bar to enter the volume slider (without even touching the video area), the toolbars disappear. I can still use it my moving it further down, but the flickering looks strange and is unexpected.
Confirmed in trunk.
I upgraded to KDE 4.3.2 (Kubuntu packages) and still have this issue
KDE 4.4.2 still shows this behaviour. I guess the toolbars are both hidden when the cursor leaves the main toolbar, but the code does not notice that I actually entered another toolbar.
The same is still happening in KDE 4.6.2.

A patch to fix the bug
I wrote and attached a patch to address this problem. It slightly changes the toolbar/volume slider behaviour in fullscreen-mode:
- The toolbar and volume dock are shown when the mouse moves, or when it is in the area covered by these
- Both are hidden when the mouse is outside their area, and does not move for 2 seconds
This fixes the toolbar flickering issues for me, as well as the problem described in this bug.
SVN commit 1258978 by ralfjung:
Fix for volume slider to often be unexpectedly hidden in fullscreen mode
The toolbars are now only hidden if the mouse is seen outside of them, and if
it does not move for 2 seconds.
