Display sometimes goes sqiffy when using vln/mplayer

I have had this problem for a while, ime using a laptop nvida graphics
card.  Every so often when I go into vln or mplayer the display gets
corrupted, the same stuff is kind of mirrored in 5+ stripes
overlapping making the display unusable. Atl+Alt+f3 etc. to go to
another console ro restart gdm does nothing.   The full screen
playback works OK.  The only solution is to reboot.

Any idea why this is happening and how to fix it?
