I've seen the same thing on my box.  In my case, it was simply from
upgrading from 0.15.1 to 0.16.  The OSD is grey because I have XvMC
turned on.  Also, while the OSD is on, I'm sometimes getting a
stuttering playback (that's normal on my AMD 2500+ with HDTV scaled down
to 640x480, but now I sometimes see it with regular TV).
