 Replying to [ticket:7399 pete-mythtv@…]:
 > This behavior started immediately after updating from 0.22.0+fixes22517
 to fixes22547, and still occurs in fixes22550.  Running Mythbuntu 9.04
 x86_64, plus daily 0.22-trunk builds.
 > Playback of HD recordings using XVideo locks up the X server (nvidia
 proprietary driver 180 on 7050PV chip) after a second or two.  Tried both
 ffmpeg & libmpeg2.  X server process pegs the CPU at 100%,
 mythfrontend.real at 35%, screen frozen.  Requires killing mythfrontend.
 OpenGL works, but results in jerky playback on my system, so I really need
 to get back to a working XVideo rendering.  (XvMC never worked reliably on
 my hardware, but it also locks up now.)
