It's the same with those options.

I think it must be a mesa/dri thing - glxgears is the same with or 
without vblank_mode=0 and llvmpipe with LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1.

Personally I don't see it as a bug that gl stops rendering like this = 
auto pause were I watching something and I needed to switch vt. If I 
only cared about the sound the -vo null/vdpau/xv.
