I've noticed you don't need to go full screen if the resoultion in the .ini is the same of the video (obiviously).
Looks like it works only in fullscreen, but maybe -fs doesn't pick automatically the current resolution
Unfortunately isn't easy to debug. directx -fs works for me using kvm (qemu+vtd), so it may be something related to hxgui vesa calls. Can you run adding -v -v to command line? it should spam more on the log, thanks

Another suggestion (unrelated to your problem) is comment out font=Arial and set fontconfig=no in the config, you can get rid of fonts subdir, mplayer will pick mplayer\subfont.ttf
