Yes, I was using VDA normal.  Unfortunately, I had forgotten about the
Qt painter/ white screen issue that Mike pointed out above.  Its in
the "Appearance" settings as opposed to Playback.  It bit me last
spring, but at that time IIRC, there was a Users thread describing the
problem and I quickly found the solution.  I must be getting old...

Sorry for the false alarm.  v0.25.3-21-g76a4f04.dmg is now working
nicely for me on 10.8.2.  I built this frontend with an i3-3225 using
the integrated HD-4000 graphics.  1080i playback and Kernel 2x
de-interlacer uses about 1.5 cores out of 4 and looks fabulous.  h264
playback with VDA barely registers... Thanks!
