This is the failure footprint when people try to use OpenGL vsync with 
the 53xx nVidia drivers.

1. Make SURE you're actually running nVidia's 6111; no leftover 
libraries from earlier versions.  Make sure you build Myth against them 

2. Build with OpenGL vsync disabled.  It should fall back to RTC (verify 
with 'mythfrontend --verbose playback'; if not, search the archives for 
help).  Reports are that quality (smoothness) is almost as good.
