I've also run into "broken" DVDs where the soundtracks don't make sense 
- eg stereo spanish is the primary, stereo english is secondary, and 5 
channel english is track 129.  Try using mplayer and/or lsdvd to see 
what soundtracks are where.

Linux stuff has made big progress over the competition. When things sit and don't start right away, we have a watch, and those poor guys have to settle for an hourglass.
