I read the post from Mark Buechler as well where he states that he
believes this to be more releated to the ivtv drivers.  But if that's
the case, why would the video be extremely accelerated before the pause
when it's starving?  It seems to me that if the video ran at the normal
rate, it wouldn't starve?
