image corruption in VLC
In Fedora 20 and Fedora Rawhide I see screen corruption for certain videos in VLC, once I run two or more of them (consecutively). I identified the problem is in glamor. By using git bisect, I found the offending commit is:

glamor: enable Xv by default
Also move the configure option out of the middle of
the debug option handling.

In the attachment, you can see a VLC screenshot playing Gladiator, but displaying Black Mirror snapshot as a green overlay. Black Mirror was the last movie I played _before_ Gladiator.
It doesn't happen for all videos (for example Big Buck Bunny seems to be always fine). Also it usually happens just for the second (or further) video played. Once it happens, I can't get rid of the image corruption even by restarting VLC. I need to restart whole X.
Totem and Smplayer don't seem to be affected. Also, when I force other than Automatic/XV output in VLC, the image looks fine.
