Reimar solved the conundrum;  I mis-typed the option.

           **** Your system is too SLOW to play this!  ****

Possible reasons, problems, workarounds:
- Most common: broken/buggy _audio_ driver
  - Try -ao sdl or use the OSS emulation of ALSA.
  - Experiment with different values for -autosync, 30 is a good start.
- Slow video output
  - Try a different -vo driver (-vo help for a list) or try -framedrop!
- Slow CPU
  - Don't try to play a big DVD/DivX on a slow CPU! Try some of the lavdopts,
    e.g. -vfm ffmpeg -lavdopts lowres=1:fast:skiploopfilter=all.
- Broken file
  - Try various combinations of -nobps -ni -forceidx -mc 0.
- Slow media (NFS/SMB mounts, DVD, VCD etc)
  - Try -cache 8192.
- Are you using -cache to play a non-interleaved AVI file?
  - Try -nocache.

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: uninit_vo
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
  Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
  disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
  It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
  gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
  DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
  won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

The slow message is because pulseaudio has 44100 set as default, and
this is using 48000, so on the fly format conversion is occurring.  I
can fix that by using ffmpeg to reformat the video to set the audio to
some low multiple of 44100, say 11025, and mono output.  Or even 44100,
so there is no realtime conversion required.

There won't be any within the Fedora package system, but I could
probably download a tar package directly from GNU.  I recall doing this
a long time ago.  It required more than one compile, as I recall, and
took a long time to complete. I don't know if that is still the case;
I might do this, at least I'll think about it.  

But I tend to agree with Reimar that this is a nouveau problem, so I
will pursue, and report via bugzilla, that avenue first.  Though this is
likely to be an inadvertent regression of enhancements for more modern
hardware, and unlikely to be fixed; I have read that there is very
little development occurring in nouveau for old hardware. Actually,
from what I read, none.  So this was probably a side effect of the
development on the 8 and 9 series that is the primary focus.
