Hey, Mats--

A few questions.

1) Are you using a hyperthreaded/dual-core/dual-processor system?
2) What engine are you using, and what versions of the libraries (i.e. 
xine 1.1.1, xine 1.1.2, etc.), and from where?
3) Does this happen in the just-released 1.4.4?
4) Are you doing anything really fancy that might be a factor, such as 
running Xgl?
5) Are your packages coming from the same place as your operating system 
packages? (i.e. Fedora Core official repositories vs. Livna repositories).
