It shouldn't be.  When I play any DVD through mplayer with the default cache 
size, it works fine, but can get choppy in fast-motion scenes.  Setting a 
high buffer gives me smoother playback, but then crashes my system when the 
disc changes layers.  I guess I just wanted to check to see if anyone else 
had noticed the same problem, or if it was a bug they were actively trying 
to correct.  I can imagine it being a simple case they didn't check: trying 
to read too far on the DVD to fill the buffer, without properly switching 
layers.  I'm a programmer myself, but have never worked with DVD access, so 
I don't know if this _could_ actually be a problem, but that's just my 
initial assumption.

No one else has noticed this?
