Hallo Will,

Thank you for drawing my attention to ...

In fact, starting Mplayer (standalone, I don't use the Gecko plugin in
Iceweasel) from the command line, I also get the message

"Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_nvidia.so: cannot open shared ..."

which I had overlooked all the time. It is really a warning only.

The aforementioned problem with Mozilla (resulting in segmention fault)
had never before occurred to me in any other PC.

My first guess was a hardware problem (defective memory), but why then
should it always happen exactly on he same occasion?

Best regards,
