Unhappy XVideo extension woes when window 1280x1024

I'm using the "xv" driver with xine to watch movies, play CDs, etc. Everything works fine until I resize the window somewhere close to full-screen, which for my display is 1280x1024. At that point every third or fourth row in the window gets shifted about 20 pixels sideways or so... almost looks like a badly interlaced TV signal. Furhtermore, if I pause playback, and the image freezes, I notice flicker in the image; at lower window sizes the image is solid when paused. So all this is looking like a HW driver problem to me.

Has anybody seen this? Hints? Fixes?

I'm using:
Linux 2.4.20
Pentium IV 2.4 GHz
MSI GeForce4 TI4200
XFree 4.2.1.1
Nvidia drivers 1.0.4191

I can attach my XF86Config, but I strongly doubt this is a configuration issue.

I have exactly the same problem.
I would describe it as wrong horizontal sync signal. The lines are twitching/shifting like if you send monitor a signal it can't handle.

It only happens when playing video with xv driver (using mplayer). When I use the gl2 or x11 drivers, it is OK.
Solution is to downgrade to 4191 drivers.
(4191 and earlier don't do it, 4349 and later do).

My software/hardware configuration:
GeForce2 MX with TV-Out
MSI KT-400
RedHat 8.0 with vanilla kernel 2.4.21-pre1.

Hmmm, for me even version 4191 has the problem. I've tried 4349 since, and that too is problematic. Perhaps I can drop to an even older version, but that would be a pain (more recompiling, etc).
