I have a system on which X is too slow to play video, so I've been using the

the video system properly, so things look like crap for a while until
mplayer is run again and resets the video correctly upon exit. X is using
the VESA driver as well.

Has this problem been observed before and are there ways around it? I can
provide details in a followup post although I suspect it's a generic sort of
