X :1 -layout tv
DISPLAY=:1.0 mplayer -fs stuff.avi
in most cases the first time it runs, the second time i start a movie
redirecting to :1; it crashes X :1.
(btw: mplayer doesn't have a proper terminal shutdown when it crashes, i
have to "reset" the term ;) )
I also have a nvidia (gef4) and i believe their 3123 are the cause of
this. Mailed them; they didn't replied.
