[mythtv] DVD dropping back to the frontend at the menu. PCM_DVD problem?

I've found several DVD's which play fine in VLC and Movie Player yet
drop back to the frontend as soon as the DVD menu is reached.  I'm
wondering if there is something similar to the old bugs #8134 and


These are some workout and Yoga DVD's of my wife's.  I'm not sure how
stringent the DVD's were mastered according to standards.  Maybe they
did something unusual with the audio?  What makes me wonder about the
similarities to the bugs listed is the PCM_DVD, type Audio, bitrate 0

If you need any more info please let me know!

Here is a frontend log using -v playback,audio and --loglevel debug :
