The Xext library has the extension, but the server hasn't yet. It should
be harmless. I don't notice any problems with it. (7.1-RELEASE amd64
with Xorg 7.4)

I've got mplayer playing fine with this message.

What driver are you using in X? And what kind of video output driver are
you using in mplayer?

X is working fine here on a Radeon X1650 on 7.1-RELEASE with rnoland's
last patch to update the kernel direct rendering support (which should
be in 7-STABLE by now). Accellerated X works, 2D and 3D. Xv also works.

The upcoming server 1.6.0 has this extension. As soon as that is rolled
out, the messages should disappear, I think.

You yould try to roll-back the Xext library...
