It certainly has points in common, but it happens with all the files I 
have tried, from recordings and homebrew dvd, and they have all been 
through the ProjectX process that leaves just the video and one mp2 
stereo track.  Didn't happen in 0.23.1 or anything earlier, nor in vlc. 
  I presume it isn't a general problem, but I'll try it in 0.24 f12 with 
a core2duo when the 0.23 schedule frees up the hardware.
