Yes and that's why, for the umpteenth time, the vout display should not know 
anything of the decoder device. Either video context and decoder device are 
one and the same thing, really the video buffer storage/video memory device, 
and they should be unified. Or they are not the same thing, and the vout 
display should not have to see decoder devices ever.
