I'm firing up df_xine now to see if there's any similarity.
OK, playing a copy of some interlaced video with scrolling text (BBC News 24).

Using df_xine -a 5:4 -l 0 -s -f top 001.vdr
I get perfect output! This is what Markus and I are seeing for a few
seconds before the field sync gets screwed

With df_xine -a 5:4 -l 0 -s -f bottom 001.vdr
The output is constantly like the stuttering video we're seeing most
of the time.

So somehow xineliboutput is losing field sync, should be a simple fix
then... :-)

Needless to say I have no audio, buts it just a configuration problem at my end.
