Aha! This is probably it!

I just upgraded my workstation at work to 8.2 (also nvidia) and I am not  
having the crash but I also don't have that newer flash version that  
includes vdpau support. I will downgrade the flash version at home and  
report back.

It would possibly also be wise to contact the maintainer and have him mark  
the port as BROKEN or conflicting or something if you're running nvidia so  
people don't run into this issue.
