[Bug 152393] Re: Kaffeine reports assertion failure, displays horizontal lines

I figured out the cause of the problem. The X server is incorrectly reporting a physical
screen dimension of 0x0 millimeters:
$ xdpyinfo | grep -C1 millimeters
dimensions: 640x480 pixels (0x0 millimeters)
resolution: -2147483648x-2147483648 dots per inch
This causes a division by zero when kaffeine tries to calculate the display aspect
ratio in KXineWidget::initXine(), which in turn triggers the assertion failure and
causes the corrupt display.
Apparently the incorrect screen dimension is a known issue with the fglrx
driver; see, for example, bug #134142.
The attached patch makes kaffeine work again for me.
