Do happen to use XvMC-support yourself ?
I just traced my system and found out that if I run the mythcommflag
with the same parameters as the above code does, I get screen full
of "GetNextFreeFrame() is getting a busy frame P." errors.

Somehow I think that the patch removing locking from videobuffers.cpp
might have something to do with this problem (haven't had time to
debug deep enough).
