I just registered to let you know that I think I'm experiencing the same problem.
I also have Palit 9500GT 512MB DDR2 and never got VDPAU working. I've tried XBMC (many builds) with Ubuntu 8.04 and 8.10 using 185.13 drivers.

Basically XBMC just freezes when I try to start any h264 encoded video with VDPAU enabled. Sometimes I get some "blocks" on screen though, but no video/audio. The videos play fine using software decoding.

I'm not very familiar with Linux, so I don't know if I'm able to provide any crash logs etc.

But it would be nice to know if anyone with 9500GT DDR2 has had any success with VDPAU.
