 Definitely no objections, and thanks!

 IIRC, the problem (or at least one problem) is that the "always display
 captions" setting is only checked when playback starts, and if captions
 don't appear "soon enough" after playback starts, or "disappear" and then
 reappear during playback, that setting isn't considered.  The caption
 availability is tracked in the decoder thread, then communicated via some
 (synchronized?) fields to the UI thread, making it extra tricky to manage.
 (assuming I'm remembering correctly)
