Since 10.10 has been released, there have been a number of reports of
this. It appears to occur when using a vendor driver (Nvidia mostly,
but I think there have been reports of non-Nvidia) along with using a
MythTV profile that invokes XvMC. Presumably the problem/bug is
actually in the latest Xorg.
