Description of problem:
I am runnning a 1280x1024 desktop, and playing Loki's Alpha Centauri in
1024x768 fullscreen resolution. When movies play in Alpha Centauri, the
game switches to 800x600 resolution and uses the Xv extension to play the

compressed to the upper 2/3 of the screen only. Disabling SDL's Xv support
allows the switch to work and the movie to play as normal. This worked in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure Alpha Centauri for 1024x768 support
2. Start Alpha Centauri
3. Watch opening movie
Actual Results: You will see the squashed screen (XFree86 reports the mode
switch to have worked, but it does not look right).
Expected Results: The movie should be centered on the screen and stretch
from the left to the right of the screen.

Also happens with release version 7.2
Only occurs in 16bpp, cannot reproduce in 32bpp. On 7.1 worked in 16bpp.
Does the problem persist in RHL 7.3?
I tested this in skipjack public beta 2 and it still occurred. Unfortunately I
am no longer running linux on x86 (only on powerpc) and I can no longer test for
A bug fix for Radeon Xv issues is in rawhide presently which
supposedly fixes this issue. I'm unable to test this specific
problem personally as I do not have this game available.
Changing state to MODIFIED pending feedback.
I'll assume it works if I haven't heard feedback otherwise in a month
