[MPlayer-users] [BUG] DVD chapter seeking problem

I'm having a problem with MPlayer (cvs) and "-chapter" option. I've
Babylon 5 Season Two -DVD-package (PAL, 6 DVDs), and seeing the last
episode of four on any of the 6 DVDs seems problematic. I'm taking an
example of this disc 2 I'm using now:
1. mplayer dvd://1 -chapter 13 correctly starts at the third episode -
there are 24 chapters, so 1=1st ep, 7=2nd ep, 13=3rd ep and 19=4rd ep.
2. mplayer dvd://1 -chapter 19 (or anything above) starts at the same
location as -chapter 13, and trying to seek forward results in black screen
3. mplayer dvd://1 -chapter 18 starts correctly near the beginning of
the 3rd episode, but trying to seek past the end of episode texts
results in mplayer quitting when the 4th episode starts
4. doing as before, -chapter 18, but letting the end texts roll, gives
me finally the 4th episode to watch, though I shall not try to seek or
I've a long time to wait to catch the same position again :(
Running MPlayer with '-v' doesn't show up any differences besides that
with -chapter 19 there's a line "TRIED UP TO POSITION 3713847625, FOUND
0, packet_size= 71", where with earlier chapters there is a line with
"FOUND 1" instead.
I don't know how could I give something with which to reproduce this,
uploading 7GB to mplayer's ftp is probably not an option :) MPlayer is
compiled with the defaults, ie. libmpdvdkit2.
Any ideas, or anyone able to reproduce this? I haven't tried
libcss/libdvdread yet because they'd be no use for me because I'm
watching DVDs with Movix's bundled MPlayer anyway. I'm using Movix
because TV-out doesn't work in my 'too-recent' distribution I'm normally
using, -vo vesa segfaults. This is the glibc&mplayer&vesa -problem there
have been posts about.
