I can confirm  this problem with MKV playback with Haali's parser.
In Zoomplayer I get a "List Index out of bounds (-1)" error message and the 
video doesn't begin to play.
After this message Zoomplayer hangs totally up and I have to close ZP within the 
Windows task manager.

I also tried to downgrade to older versions( back to 10.04.2005) of Haali's 
splitter but this error message appears again.
It doesn't happen always. Some files work but some not (although used Codecs 
(XviD/AAC) are the same). All files played fine with Haali's parser at the time 
after muxing.

Now I installed latest MatroskaSplitter from Gabest and it works without any 
problems. No error message with any MKV file, every file works!

So there must be a bug in Haali's parser.

Hope this info helps for debugging
