No reply since almost a month, so I close this. Feel free to reopen...

sorry for late response
host is now knoppix 3.6 (
for compiler and xfree version)

MPlayer-20041109 and still the same garbage at bottom of screen

also found another display corruption (under xv)
first column form right of fullscreen video contain data copied from 16th (may
be wrong) column
copy is not perfect, this column contains additional garbage (horizontal lines)
width of copied column is related to width of source video - smaller resolution
means bigger last column

This "blinking blue/green/purple line at bottom of XV fullscreen" artifact has
always been present on my machines that have 3dfx graphics cards in them, but on
none of my machines that have other types of graphic cards. I am thinking this
may either be a bug in the overlay support of the 3dfx cards themselves, or in
the XFree86 tdfx video driver.

These were AFAIK driver bugs. Please reopen if I am wrong.
