The symptoms seem to have gone away.  I can tell you that I've made
the following changes:

"UseEvents" has been turned on in the xorg.conf

I changed the Video Playback Profile to "Slim" in the Playback setup options.

When I have some time, I'll do some more toggling to see if I can
isolate which (if either) of these things has an obvious impact.
