It sometimes appears after reboot, and sometimes it does not.
Sometimes it is worse with VDPAU sometimes with XV. No clue why.
Any problem that appears in both Xv and VDPAU is most likely unrelated to the driver; the two driver code-bases are entirely separate. Perhaps an incorrectly encoded file, a corrupted file, or a HW issue?
