The problem first showed up on mythtv, on the frontend-only machine. My
backend is currently on 2.6.29 - but the frontend on it works also. I
have another frontend-only machine at 2.6.30, and it works OK. All 3
have nVidia, though the machine with difficulties has a 5700LE, and has
to run legacy drivers.
