VLC dies at fullscreen

When I run VLC it sometimes dies when I switch to/from fullscreen.

[16:59:33] mezzymeat@garanka:/usr/local/source/bind-9.3.0$ vlc /home/mezzymeat/public/unsorted/Powerpuff\ Pinglorna\ -\ Powerpuff\ Bluffen\ \(2000\).avi 
VLC media player 0.8.1 Janus
[00000421] mpeg_audio decoder: MPGA channels:2 samplerate:48000 bitrate:32
The program '' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
  (Details: serial 414 error_code 8 request_code 42 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
