I'd love to. But I don't know how to do that.
Changing the 'Depth' in "Screen" in /etc/X11/xorg.conf did not cause
the "playing movies locks the system" problem to go away.

From my point of view, the hang has already been logged as #9407.
I think poor "moving pictures" is __the__ problem with the XO-1.5.
Therefore I'm willing to put effort into documenting that which is
happening (and into testing fixes, if someone were kind enough to
give me something I can try).
But this is a hang - which leaves the XO-1.5 completely unresponsive
to operator input (except for the power button). So I do not have
my normal opportunity to capture file contents, etc. They are wiped
out by the reboot I perform to access the system again.
I think Martin mentioned he was able to get in to the hung system
with SSH. I have basically never used SSH -- so I would have to do
a lot of learning before I could use that to obtain better
information than I have now (I wrote all I knew in my post).
