Hmm I would have expected it to select the first (lowest numbered)
audio track by default, not the first one that has packets in the mpeg

As it is today it's basically inconsistent in the "default" audio
language choice which is unexpected.

I suppose it could default to the system language, I'd be OK with that.

Perhaps it's missing some type of dvdnav "bootstrap" code somehow
[that's why it is displaying subtitles on by default, as well].  Disc
init stuff.
