I've had that happen on DVDs, but I never really considered it a bug in
mplayer.  What you should be doing is setting your audio language in
mplayer.conf (eg alang=en), otherwise, all bets are off on what will be
sent to the audio decoder. The fact that other players play it correctly
just means they babysit their users more (and assume a lot).

Then again, maybe the developers will say I'm wrong, and this really is
a bug? Who knows. The difference between bug and feature is arbitrary.
