I'm using X.org with a Matrox G400 card (monohead, AGP, 16MB of RAM,
resolution of 1400x1050) and I have no problems like corrupted display.

I sincerely don't know, for those using a Matrox card. OTOH, for the
Mach64 on my notebook, it now features the xv extension out of the box.

I just wish that this extension were supported also by the imstt card
that I have on an old PowerMac. Without it, watching any movie is almost
impossible, unfortunately. :-(
