 From what I understand it's not a USF problem (and USF will not solve 
such problems magically). I know there are some problems but I don't 
know the precise details.

Does MPC for W9x work fine with subs in MKV ?
Does Haali's splitter work fine in W9x ? Does it solve possible issues ? 
Or is the problem in vobsubs, in which case we'd have to push Gabest to 
try to get things fixed.

As we plan to release a new pack in a few weeks, we have enough time to 
make sure it works in W9x too. We have good coders, it's just a matter 
of time and will :)
