I'd try converting this to MPsub (with -dumpmpsub option) and then
splitting should be easier (as MPsub is based on offsets, so it's just
one subtitle to correct, see
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/subosd.html#mpsub ) and then
convert it back to anything you use. Never done this myself however, and
I guess there are programs to do this - I just don't know them.
