I see, thank you, it sounds good. I use 3.4.3 on usual 32-bit machine
and it satisfies all needs. So I see there is just normal problems, that
will soon be resolved.

What are that junk strings? These?:

It is not junk, it is SSA/ASS-scripts format header, it's necessary for
applications that can handle
different text styles in the same script (usually, I see subtitles in
anime, so there is a pretty good
thing if each character has its color of subtitle. However, in mplayer
this feature is not yet supported.)
mkvmerge should understand that it is SSA/ASS, not SRT or anything, so
you won't see that lines
in a movie. mplayer parses SSA and shows only text, without any styles.
If the script you have, has
large number of overlapping entries this may confuse mplayer, and
something will either stick on
screen, or won't be visible.
If nothing helps - try to use Perl to remove lines you do not like, it
likes such jobs.
