Odd...  I use the nvidia drivers, and compile MPlayer with GL
support.  Not one problem as of yet.  Is this a change in very
recent versions of the NVidia driver?

Slightly off the subject, but I find that NVidia's drivers get a bad
wrap, as they end-up being the canary in the coal mine.  If your
hardware is buggy, a failing video driver is usually the first visible
clue... If your Linux system/kernel is poorly configured, the video
driver may be the first program you install which exhibits problems.
