[mythtv-users] NVP: Timed out waiting for free video buffers

this is a software issue.
However, I have a mythfrontend that runs off a usb flash drive.  I can
use it on one system that has a nVidia 5200 without this error, but with
another system with a nVidia 6100, the video randomly freezes with NVP:
Timed out waiting for free video buffers, the only way out is to kill
the frontend and restart it.  I can work around it by disabling glx, but
I'm hoping for a better solution.  I have compiled the frontend against
nvidia glx headers and mesa headers, the problem exists with both.
