Package: libva-x11-1
Version: 1.0.8-3
Severity: normal

(gdb) up

(gdb) l
287         /* Assume a NULL display implies VA-API 0.31.1 struct with the
288            vtable_tpi field placed just after the vtable, thus replacing
289            original native_dpy field */
290         if (!ctx0->native_dpy)
291             return vdpau_Initialize_0_31_1(ctx);
293         return vdpau_Initialize_0_31_0(ctx);
294     }
295     #endif

That comment looks damning. It is calling vdpau_Initialize_0_31_1, with
the null native_dpy (as apparently expected), which is then ultimately
being passed to XDisplayString, leading to a segfault.

So, it seems there is an API mismatch.
