Removing the errant index entry did indeed remove the problem. There must be a 
way to do that in code so you don't have to do it by hand though. 

In the mean time, is there a way to get the subtitles back into the ripped 
video? (I hunted through the docs but couldn't find anything). Or do you have 
to keep video, sub and inx files around?
