I'm not sure whether what I saw is related or not. I got hard lockups of the
whole system when running LiveTV. As it's a hard lockup, thus most likely
a kernel bug, I suspect it's a driver problem. Therefore, I recompiled
MythTV without OpenGL vsync to see if it's a Nvidia driver bug. I'll
see whether the hard lockup is still
