Hrm... this almost sounds like my performance problems with MythTV right 
now.. I haven't done any checking, but I do know that with my dual head 
setup XFree disables DRI, so it could very well be disabling Xv as well. 
Any ideas about what I could do about this, short of dumping dual-head? 
Or am I pretty much screwed until an X update fixes this?
