MediaPlayer GUI needs to use the layout system

I emailed about this on the haiku-development list.
I don't know if this is a GCC4 issue, but I can consistently make the MediaPlayer GUI look bad with the current code.
To reproduce, open the MediaPlayer, then either use the Alt-M shortcut or click the "No Menu" menu item under Settings. You must do this first to reproduce. You will get the top window shown in the attached image. You can still click the menu as seen in the second window in the attachment.
If you then show the menu again, hide the controls, and click the menu you get the third window.
The above might be a bug in the code, though if you open the application then hide the controls first and then the menu, it does not happen. Either way I think using the layout system would be better.
If you set the menu font size to 18 you get the last image, which is definitely something the layout system could fix.
Maybe this could be tackled once stippi finishes his changes to the MediaPlayer back-end.
