Package: elisa
Version: 0.3.5-3
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

Elisa freezes my system completely when running.
I used Elisa a few times. Sometimes it works normally and plays my videos without crashing, but sometimes, the video (and the system) freezes, and 
one time Elisa even froze in the menu (while browsing trough the video folders).

The system freezes completely. There is no restarting of the X-server possible (tried CTRL+ALT+Backspace), not even the magic systemkey-request 
reacts. By remote: No login via ssh is possible, the system even cannot be pinged. It's completely gone, and I have to make a cold reset.

Elisa gets its music data via samba, but the videos are on the local harddisk.

After the reboot, no information can be found in any of the log files.

Video driver is intel:

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
        Driver          "intel"
        Option          "DRI"                           "true"
        Option          "UseFBDev"                      "true"
        Option          "PageFlip"                      "true"
        Option          "TripleBuffer"                  "true"
        Option          "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps"         "true"
        Option          "FramebufferCompression"        "false"
        # Enable offload of Motion Compensation (XvMC)
        Option          "LinearAlloc"                   "16384"
        Option          "Cachelines"                    "2048"
        Option          "XvMCSurfaces"                  "7"

Please tell me, which information is needed additionally.
