Any idea on what this means (using latest svn)?

[ass] fontconfig: Выбранный шрифт не совпадает с запрошенным: 'Arial' != 'Arial Narrow'

subtitle piece:
[V4+ Styles]
Style: KonominiBike,Arial Narrow,21,&H00000000,&H00000000,&H00000000,&H00000000,1,0,0,0,100,120,0,0,1,0,0,2,20,20,30,0

Dialogue: 0,0:00:01.20,0:00:04.11,KonominiBike,,0000,0000,0000,,{\fs26\frz-88.8\fscy100\pos(420,310)}Temporaryschool this way

$ fc-match 'Arial Narrow'
arialn.ttf: "Arial Narrow" "Narrow"

PS thanks for the fixes, now mplayer still prints something like
[ass] fontconfig: Выбранный шрифт не совпадает с запрошенным: 'LaurenScript' != 'LaurenScript Regular'

because the font isn't 'LaurenScript Regular', but 'LaurenScript' with
style='Regular', but actually picks LaurenScript for rendering instead
of Sans.
