Strange.  This is the crash I'd expect if you have an older (5xxx) 
version of the nVidia libraries installed.  Try reinstalling 6111 on the 
frontend; maybe something clobbered one of its libraries.

Did you build MythTV yourself?  If so, try rebuilding against a 
freshly-installed nVidia 6111.

Otherwise, you could always rebuild w/o OpenGL vsync support and fall 
back to RTC; you may see an occasional hiccup in playback, but it seems 
to work pretty well.
