Public bug reported:

This bug occurs with linux-image-2.6.15-23 but not linux-

Due to bug 32963, I cannot play videos using Xv. I tried all backends
xine supports, and only xshm showed correct colors and was smooth
enough. With a new kernel upgrade, videos do not play well anymore. They
seem to play at a very low frame rate, like <10fps.

I hope this bug is easy enough to be fixed for Dapper, since it is
introduced just recently.

Motherboard is Foxconn 945G7MA-8EKRS2. Monitor is LG L1950S. Xorg driver
is i810.
