Unhappy Intermittent "BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)" when maximizing video

When attempting to maximize playing videos (dvd's, avi, mpeg) under a composited environment - aiglx + compiz (latest) with the latest xorg-server (1.2.0-3) I occasionally receive the error below (or something resembling it):

BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)

If I keep attempting to maximize the windows, especially with mplayer, they eventually maximize. This problem is exacerbated when I have many windows open (see attached nvidia_video_player_errors.txt for a more detailed perspective).

As a side note, under the same environment, any cpu activity (user) above 50% (e.g compiling the nvidia module for the kernel using the nvidia script, running "yes" in a terminal) renders the mouse cursor and window/compositing manager (compiz) unusable.

I should point out that under (xgl + compiz) I don't see these effects.

Please see attached nvidia_bug_report.log for system specifics. Thanks for any assistance.
