[mythtv-users] Strange VDPAU error

I'm bringing this back to life.  I upgraded to 0.22 last week and tonight
was the first night we really watched a lot on it.  I'm using the latest
Mythbuntu 9.10 release with all updates.  I watched about 2 hours of shows.
 About 1hr and 35 minutes in I got the serious error message and it exited
out of the program.

I thought I had read somewhere this was fixed in the latest driver/myth
release but I guess not.  Anyone have any insight or thoughts.
