Thanks very much for your menu stutter patch..

The age/versions of libdvdnav & libdvdread could have a lot to do with
peoples DVD problems. Could also explain why some other app have no
problem with same DVD (if statically linked to later ver).

HandBrake (IMO) has the best DVD handling, one of the developers has a
lot of involvement in libdvdread/nav.
