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.
