nah I don't know about that... 

<begin anti-celeron rant>

you can comapre cache sizes and all that, but the celeron usually will
not work as well as it's specs seem to indicate it should.  there's a
reason that many people call it the broken processer.  your celeron
2.4 just may perform about equally to a athlon-xp 1800, maybe less.

<end celeron rant>

still, you should be able to do what you want on that hardware...

you may as well try turning deinterlacing off completely while you're
testing, just to rule it out as a cause

have you tried the non-cvs version to see if the problem still occurs?
