We had a similar problem on SGi's here at work an i believe doing the glxMakeCurrent etc. from the main thread fixed the problem. The person who did this work is on holiday this week but i can check next week what the exact workaround we had to use was for SGI's if it would help.

First thing I tried :-)

Though I may take your suggestion and try to do so *from the main UI 
thread* just before shutting down the video playback thread.
