I was referring to the opengl painter which, I believe, should not have 
any effect on video playback.  I wanted the fading menu transitions, but 
could not get them to work for a long time on two of my frontends. 
Wiping out my svn directory and compiling a fresh one finally worked for 
me.  However, I had not tried 'make distclean'.  Only 'make clean'.
