Thanks for testing.

Uups, that's bad. I known that 855GM and 865G suffer from some
bandwidth/watermarking problem. But not that bad. I've hoped that other,
newer chipsets would work. Unfortunately I am at loss problem. I've
already tried changing a few obvious differences of the kms driver vs. the
ums driver in (fifo watermarks and similar stuff) but nothing helped. And
given that there's no freely available documentation for anything older
that 965 (and even there, bandwidth allocation issues seem to be not
completely documented) I don't think I have a chance to fix this.
Can you perhaps take a look?
btw: At least on my hw, when a stop the video and don't update the
overlay, the image stabilizes within a few secs (load is at most some
mouse wiggling). So I don't thing the overlay regs are set up wrong, it's
just that there are tons of underruns in the output engine under load.
