Currently this can be "fixed" using this lua script:

start_fullscreen = function(event)
    if not mp.get_property_native("fullscreen") then
        mp.add_timeout(0.5, function()
            mp.set_property_native("fullscreen", true)

mp.register_event("file-loaded", start_fullscreen)

Or, using this script:
add the following profile to the mpv.conf:


@wm4 is it possible to enter the fullscreen state after the window has been properly initialized, so there wasn't any need to use the dirty hacks I mentioned above?
