Yes, I'm using Xv:
xine --no-logo --no-splash -V xv -A alsa -pfhq -g %s

I'm not sure what's happening.  Xine has never been an issue for me
until I went to the SVN head branch.  I'm not so sure it's
mythcommflag now, due to my previous update.  What I am noticing now
is that the whole box seems to freeze for a couple seconds every so
