Hi,

I did some testing with current Foobar2000 version ( 0.8.3 ) and MKA 
files with chapters ( made from a CUE sheet ) , muxed with different 
versions of mkvmerge/mmg.exe . Here the result :

0.7.8 : works fine
0.8.3 : works fine  ; screenshot :

0.9.0 : works fine ; screenshot :

0.9.3 : some tracks/chapters are correct, some show only INDEX0 or 
INDEX1 ; screenshot :

1.0.1 : doesnt work at all, all tracks show as the file name ;

I have no idea what can be the problem, Mosu mentioned that he expects 
that maybe the current fb2k plugin expects a certain order for chapter 
elements, or cant skip unknown ( new ) chapter elements. Needless to 
say, all files play perfect in TCMP, with correct chapter indication in 
the Media Stream list.

Hope this is helpful for the person that will ( one day ) look at the 
plugin, to update it so it can play current files correctly.
