Are you saying the error I saw during installation was due to the
missed patch, or is that error insignificant?  I'll grab your new
script and patches and do another build, but I'm not sure if I
actually need that or not?  After a quick look last night things
seemed to be working pretty well.  Now that I have had more time to
play with it I'm having trouble getting consistent video playback.
With the direct3d render I get "corruption" in the image (which I
think may be the wallpaper/whatever other window is behind the video
displaying).  The corruption seems to get worse if I move the video to
the 2nd or 3rd monitor and have the window focus somewhere else.  If I
use opengl playback will start and I can hear the audio, but the video
never appears and the "playback starting" window stays on the screen.
I'll work on grabbing some more logs to see if I can track down those
issues, but if you have any thoughts its appreciated.
