I've tested this with 0.90pre5-3.1 and the MPlayer-20020711 cvs
snapshot.  I have also tried another dvd rom.  Heres the issue:

I havn't had a chance to check this with another dvd to see how it
behaves, but with vampire princess miyu dvd #2 heres what I get with
this command:

mencoder -dvd 3 -chapter 1-6 -alang ja -slang en -dvd-device
/dev/cdroms/cdrom1 -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4 -o

I only get chapter 1-5.. if I select chapter 1-5, I get chapter 1-5.  If
I select just 6 I get chapter 6-25 (there are 25 chapters in this title)
If I select chapters 7-12 then I get chapters 7-25.  If I use mplayer
and select any single chapter it will play that chapter, and continue to
play through the rest of the dvd.  While encoding chapters 1-5 or 1-6,
or anything else for that matter, it gives me time and size estimates
for the entire chapter.  I'll be testing another dvd tonight just for
fun, and if there is anything else you would like me to try let me know.
