No, no, you misunderstand... I know streams start with 0, and isn't 
complaining about that, nor am I complaining that the menu starts counting 
with 1. The problem is that the first stream in the menu ("Track 1") doesn't 
select the first stream in the file (stream 0), it selects the second stream 
(stream 1). Thus there is no way to select stream 0 from the menu, and 
selecting the last stream in the menu ("Track 2" in this case) makes it play 
no audio at all. *That* is why I think this is a bug.
