Thanks for reporting this bug, we will look into it. To be honest, i 
have not heard from Alexander Noe, the maker of the program, for a long 
time. It may be that he discontinued development on avi-mux GUI (short : 
AMG), and maybe also his usual download space is not available anymore.

I will send the version of the program i have here on my HDD in a 
separate email to you, dating from end of 2005, so that you can do some 
testing with it.

Most matroska users today are using mkvmerge from Mosu's mkvtoolnix 
package, but especially if you are into tags and chapters editing, there 
are some clear advantages in using avi-mux GUI. mkvmerge and its GUI, 
still until today, do not offer possibilities to edit or add tags and 
advanced chapter information, while AMG will allow for that.
Be aware though, that some more modern video compression methods, like 
h.264 (AVC), may not be handled by AMG at all, forcing you to using 
mkvmerge if you intend to create MKV files containing this stream type.
