Are you sure it's not being put there by your window manager? If you 
have the system bar set to be at the bottom of the screen, with 
auto-hide turned on, it can appear as a solid line along the screen 
in some cases. I get this in visualizer mode in MythMusic, but not in 
regular video.

To test my theory, try turning auto-hide off and see if the full 
system bar stays there all the time.
