  mplayer key control broken

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  With the latest kernel (3.13.0-65) mplayer will not react on keyboard input (e.g., pause [space], volume ctrl [+]/[-]). The std output shows, however, a line that has not been shown formerly:
  "Dead key input on file descriptor 0"

  With older kernel (e.g., version 3.13.0-45-generic) mplayer works as
  expected (on the same system).

  How to reproduce the bug:
  1. start mp3 playback by executing
   mplayer foo.mp3
  2. pause playback by pressing [space]
   playback gets paused
   nothing happens

  I do not know exactly which kernel version introduced that modified
  behaviour, but it has to be between the aforementioned two versions.

  Further information:
  Description:	Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS
  Release:	14.04
