There were never backports of libvdpau1. But (nearly) all old packages
that have ever been in unstable are available from snapshot.debian.org.

Just make sure other updates don't affect the behavior.
* upgrade (get into a consistent state)
* verify the problem still exists with libvdpau1 0.4.1-5
* downgrade libvdpau1 to 0.4.1-2 (squeeze)
* verify that the bug is gone
* try libvdpau1 0.4.1-3 from snapshot.debian.org
* try libvdpau1 0.4.1-4 from snapshot.debian.org
* go back to either 0.4.1-5 or 0.4.1-2

Send the output of
  find /usr -name '*vdpau*' -ls
