[MPlayer-users] xv overlay dies with nVidia card

Hi all,

I've noticed a rather annoying problem with mplayer and/or the nVidia
closed-source driver.  It seems that after I've played a few movies
(i.e. the xv overlay has been created and destroyed a number of times -
probably 15 to 20 times) it suddenly stops creating the overlay and all
I get is the blue window where the video should be.  MPlayer doesn't
display any errors (its output is no different to when the overlay
works) so I was wondering whether anyone else had experienced this
problem?  It's rather annoying and requires a complete reload of X11 to
fix (switching to text mode and back with Ctrl+Alt+F1 doesn't work.)
