Just in case anyone is curious how this story ends...

I've replaced the Iwill KA266-R motherboard with a GigaByte GA-7DXE, and
things work great now with the 8500DV - DVD plays smooth as silk, and XWin 
works properly with the default engine.

Now, if anyone wants a slightly used KA266-R :-)

Thanks, Willem Riede.
