Ah, ok, that helps. I think I know where the problem is. FWIW, does
disabling the call to streamsOn() in savagemodeinit() fix the bug?
this will break Xv, but I think I know where the bug is. the streams
code tweaks the saling regs for playback with scaling enabled and if
you have the streams on all the time, things never get reset to the
proper values. I think we may want to revert to only enabling streams
during playback, or resetting it on a mode switch.

you can use apps like xvattr to change Xv attributes. perhaps xvattr
or something similar could be included with xorg. I guess it's GPL
There are also packages of it for most distros.
