the madagscar dvd issue is a known problem that i am working on. (#2542)

upgrade to the latest svn revision and test thoroughly. i have made some
changes to improve rew/ffw.  (3) should be fixed now. if any of the other
problems persist after the upgrade  read the ticket howto,  open a ticket
and  assign it to me.
