Quick follow up for anyone who comes across this thread while searching
the archives for their own problem: Here's some more info and a
workaround. The bug is being tracked in freedesktop.org's bugilla:
And relates to pixmaps being cached but not cleared out when the memory is
needed for the XVideo extension. There is a workaround suggested in the
bugzilla page, adding:
to xorg.conf, giving something like this:
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "Matrox Millennium G550"
This seems to work for me... though obviously it is just a workaround and
not a solution.
