I've been running 0.18.1 (with the patch to allocate 16 buffers with 
XvMC VLD rather than 8) on an VIA EPIA box for over six months and now 
mysteriously the frontend will fail when trying to view one particular 
new recording of Lost; the frontend log looks like:

2006-01-01 20:11:46.091 Changing from WatchingPreRecorded to None

  serial no: 51
   err code:

   req code: \uffff

and then a few more XErrors like that followed by:

2006-01-01 20:11:52.911 Failed to create XvMC Buffers.
2006-01-01 20:11:52.912 Falling back to X11 network display.

any ideas?  I can view other recordings without any problem still, it's 
just this one which fails.
