I downloaded winff and will see if it works better; it seems that winff is a wrapepr around ffmpeg; not sure what avidemux uses. I did answer yes to safe mode but i think gtk was confused by the window size avidemux tried to create. I'm running ubuntu 11.10 with gnome; and unfortunately ubuntu really wants to use unified and in 11.10 they have not done a very good job with gnome (all of this is unrelated to converting videos; but it has caused some issues with graphic interfaces)
Anyways i'll spend a litlte more time with winff tomorrow; though if i can figure out what voodoo is needed for winff then i should be able to move those switches into mencoder :)
however it does sound like i would be better off (well less time) just extracting the subtitles with mkvtoolnix and including the second file with the video stream (that's what acidrip did when I use to read directly from dvd)

For Avidemux, answer "yes" if you're asked whether you'd like to "use
another mode which is safe" to help prevent crashes with mkvs.
"WinFF is available for Windows 95, 98 , ME, NT, XP, VISTA, and Debian,
Ubuntu, Redhat based GNU/Linux distributions."
Having said that, mkvtoolnix is still my tool of choice for extracting
subtitles from an mkv container.
