Ok. For what it's worth, I started a movie playing in my primary X
server, switched to fullscreen, killed my two secondary X servers
(leaving me in a text VC), and switched back the primary. Then I
switched back to text, and started up both secondary X servers again,
simultaneously. I closed them both immediately, then restarted them. 
Mplayer played straight through with nary a hiccup.
