Thanks.  That pretty much confirms the problem is with the kernel GL
deinterlacer.  I'll see what I can do.  No promises beyond that.

Back in the days before vdpau, kernel deinterlacing in software was
the preferred option on systems that couldn't do yadif and greedh.  By
the time kernel GL came along, vdpau was king.  I think everyone
noticed that kernel GL sucked but nobody cared enough to look into it.
