Actually just a warning, other programs give it too. Doesn't seem to be
related to the current problem.

More like it. Googling didn't find a definitive answer but just
suggested too little (video) memory as the root cause. Which led to the
thought that I've swapped back to a decent size monitor that can display
1600x1200, so I've adjusted my x configuration to give that as the
Reverting to an earlier xorg.conf file with lower maximum resolution
allows Totem to start running. (I've now got a sound configuration
problem, but that's due to my recent soundcard failure...)
The bummer is that just reducing the screen resolution by
System->Preferences->Screen Resolution doesn't allow Totem to run.
Is there a workaround for this? I want to work at 1600x1200 day to day
but also be able to play DVDs. I don't think much of having to change
to an alternative xorg.conf and restart just to be able to view DVDs...
