It does NOT happen for me with XV accell, only with VDPAU. In MythTV it's a matter of switching playback profiles, so it's easy to go back and forth between working/broken.
on the off-chance it was an OS/Driver issue, I reformatted/re-installed and the problem still continued. On a case-by-case basis (resolution, encoder type etc) I can tune VDPAUBUFFERSIZE to mostly make the problem go away, but what works for one playback type doesn't work for another.
