Upgraded Xorg to: 1.1.1-48.52.el5

At this point i was still running the prerelease version of nvidia drivers.
I tested mplayer, same issue.

I removed the prerelease version and install the stable 180.51.  Mplayer
continued to crash but Xorg did hang at 100%.

I tested myth and it is working now on mpeg2 recordings (all i have)  The
clip i was testing in mplayer was h.264.  Mplayer crashes with:


Only issue in Myth is the OSD is messed up.  When i click skip i get
horizontal lines instead of the OSD.  Here is my xorg.conf file:
