The VOBs would/should play, that's unsurprising, since the issue is in
the menus.  The discrepency is in the fairly old version of libdvdnav
in .21.  Trunk just resynced with the current version of libdvdnav and
upon release of .22 you should see DVD menu navigation equivalent to
mplayer/xine/et al.
