Syslog filled my drive with 73 GB of vdpau_chroma filter error: video mixer rendering failure

On Ubuntu 20.10 - using latest drivers, experienced weird behavior.
Isn’t there any protection from not flooding the syslog with so much ?
I’ve been using nvidia since Riva TNT days, recently moved to Linux for development as it is the development platform of today, but the problems make me have the same issues as in the windows 95 days
