Unhappy Xvideo problems in 4496?

Hi all.

This might be a bug report. Does anyone else have prolems with XV and the latest drivers? I cant get xawtv to run using the Xvideo extension with my Geforce 4 Ti 4600. It does work with mplayer though?

Xawtv: Broken
mark@:~$ xawtv
This is xawtv-3.88, running on Linux/i686 (2.4.20-btp8pt)
Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-ledfixed-medium-r-*--39-*-*-*-c-*-*-*" to type FontStruct
Segmentation fault

But if I disable the XV entension.....

Xawtv: Works
mark:~$ xawtv -noxv
This is xawtv-3.88, running on Linux/i686 (2.4.20-btp8pt)

Mplayer: works

I had this also with the new version till I loaded the v4l X extension (yeah there is one go figure) and it does the following:
v4l is an XFree86 driver for video4linux cards. It provides a Xvideo
extention port for video overlay. Just add the driver to the module
list within the module section of your XF86Config file if you want to
use it. There are no config options.

I added that Load "v4l" to the X config, restarted X and lo and behold xawtv was happy. (This is on the TV-Out port also)
