Well, not xawtv, but the grabber card (by PCI-PCI xfer). Using
grabdisplay should fix that. Using Xvideo (with the X-Servers v4l
module) might fix that too, assuming the gfx cards drivers supports
the hooks v4l needs for yuv overlay and fixups the overlay location
too when it flips pages.
You can't please everybody. And usually if you _try_ to please
everybody, the end result is one big mess.
