[MPlayer-users] failing dvd subtitle

I've uploaded a 40 Mb stream clipping to the ftp under the filename 
"stream.dump_lose_a_sub".  When played straight through using the 
following command line, all subtitles are displayed expect for the 
one at 02:08:06.

  mplayer -sid 0 -osdlevel 2 stream.dump_lose_a_sub

  02:08:04 "Listen here."
  02:08:06 "Hey, Section Chief."	<-- doesn't display
  02:08:13 "I mean you, the newly appointed Public Affairs Section Chief."

Even more confusing, the 02:08:06 subtitle will display if either 
"-fps 31000/1001" or "-ss 00:00:00" is added to the command line.  Would
love to hear any guesses as to why those options could be affecting this.
