I only encounter the problem in ardour5's edit window playback.
Since 6.0xx seem to work, I'll use that, see below.


No usb, no wifi, just an old style desktop computer with MAudio
1010LT; running fvwm2.

Compiling ardour and dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/null bs=1M,
3 cores at 100%, and mplaying the downloaded video mentionend in the 
link above, gives me no problem except vt-switching gives clicks, 
moving other windows stops video playback.

mplayer interchange/20180325/audiofiles/Audio-2%R.wav seems to ignore
window movements, also run alongside glxgears shows no problem, moving
a xterm above the glxgears windows, no prob.

Compiled 6.0-pre0, created a new session and imported the files,
works fine. Same procedure with 5.12.0, 5.8.0 and 5.0.0, but they
all gives me the blips. Version 4.3 and 4.7 gives me build failures.
