xf86-video-intel: XV using the wrong pipe

Since bugs.freedesktop.org seems to be down, I might as well report this
here. Has anyone encountered this?

On my laptop, XVideo using xf86-video-intel git seems to be using the
wrong pipe (or at least, it is "hardcoded" to just one pipe). When I
have another display plugged in but cloned to the laptop's display
(i.e. they're displaying the same image at the same resolution), running
'mplayer -vo xv /some/mpg/file' will show output on the external display
and a blue screen on the laptop display. However, when I configure
dual-head (mergefb), there's output when mplayer's window is in the
external display, but blue screen on the local display.

Anyone experience this aside from me?
