 	Yeah, that's what it's looking like.  I was surprised nobody else 
had seen it and/or answered my query.  I was also surprised a week ago 
that a 'yum update' didn't fix it.

 	Any thoughts on how to disable all calls to GL temporarily?  Don't 
know if I should try it via xorg.conf, or if there's a flag in Myth to do 

 	FYI, it's very repeatable... about every third "watched recording" 
I start watching, it barfs and I have to restart the frontend.  Old ATI 
video card ('ati' driver... I think Mach64 FWIW).
