Ok. Sounds like you know what you're doing. I was just checking. ;-)

Your previous Xorg version did not have DRI-support for Savage. But your
log indicates that you don't have DRI enabled, so this can't be the
problem. I can't find any hint in your log as to why Xvideo isn't
working. What do "xdpyinfo" and "xvinfo" say?

Try Donnie Berkholz' suggestions for these issues. He only replied to
the list. Are you subscribed?
