Hmm, can't help with that. I was exposed to 6 hours with a 2 year old
this weekend. I'm not sure I could take the heat.

There were a bunch of commits over the weekend, so you may want to give
SVN a few days to stabilize. Friday should be good. Since you are using
XvMC, SVN should perform considerably better. But, make sure you backup
your database in case you need to revert to 0.19-fixes.

Also, don't use the XvMC + OpenGL output, it's not really equivalent 
to 0.19-fixes wrt to your bug. Plus, it has some performance problems.
