Default hackish fix

Setup your login manager (gdm, kdm, whatever) to restart the X server after logout. I've found that with me, the problem, if it happens, always happens after a fresh restart of X - i.e., if xvideo doesn't crash the first time I use it, it never will there-after, until I log out and back in. I have GDM setup to kill/restart the X server on every logout, and the problem is basically "fixed".
