I was thinking that myself, but this is the same source version that  
is the "official" version of the file, the only place it could go   
wrong then is when demuxing and mkvextract didn't know what to do with  
the character. And seeing as this file plays fine on media player  
classic with whatever windows tools, one of a couple things is  
happening; it's a windows non-ascii character of some sort, parsing on  
windows is done by ignoring all non-related characters, the default on  
the windows players is the view resolution of the video, or something  

I'll try and find another example file, I'm sure I have a couple  
around. I watch tons of videos with ssa subs and I'm always finding  
small glitches and things, but don't usually report problems as 50% of  
the time when I report something I get no response (at least on the  
mplayer-users list).
