Tearing on MythTV with VLC

After updating to Ubuntu 8.10, I started to get tearing artifacts. This crop up especially badly during scenes that involve panning.

The MythTV Wiki explains the fix for tearing:

echo 1024 > /proc/sys/dev/hpet/max-user-freq

Well, it works for me, anyway. I just keep forgetting what to do when it crops up.
