first: i've encoutered problems with the plf packages of mplayer. maybe 
you should use the official RPMs, or better, compile the beast yourself.

second: i've noticed the problem that you report. mplayer's OSD gives 
also bad time information with DVD. I cannot help you to solve this but 
I can advise use to use "lsdvd" in your scripts. i displays correctly 
the lenths of DVD tracks. you'll have to do some little math to convert 
it to seconds but it's quite easy.

   Windows, c'est un peu comme le beaujolais nouveau :
à chaque nouvelle cuvée on sait que ce sera dégueulasse,
     mais on en prend quand même, par masochisme.
