VDPAU initialization failure causes unrecoverable hang

Description

Using 0-22-fixes r22840 for both the frontend and backend, which are on different hosts. The frontend is using Mythbuntu with the auto-build debs (hence the up to date package).

After a while of the frontend being idle (i.e. the entire day while I'm at work) I'll go into the program listings and watch a recorded show. It will always say "Please wait" and permanently stay there until I kill it. The log message from the time I turn on the TV until when it hangs is..

I've let it sit there for up to 5 minutes and nothing else ever appears in the logs. Really 2 fixes need to happen, a graceful fall back and potentially fixing the situation that causes the initialization to fail.

I should note that a user in #mythtv-users said that he had the same issue on truck with r22424 but it was resolved with r22729. While the range is large, he suggested it was r22552 that fixed it.
