Is XP on the Mac (or OS X on the PC?)? Because if not, this could be  
an issue with the hardware. Also, does VLC produce any warning  
messages? Either way, this is either a hardware issue (Your Mac isn't  
what your PC is, assuming they're separate machines) or a software  
issue (VLC is out of date, or has some sort of bug). Anyway, since  
the file works on one system, it's likely not a problem with  
Matroska, so we may not be able to help you.

Just for curiosity sake, run the file through VLC for Windows, see  
what happens. Maybe it's some auxiliary issue, like the subtitles are  
causing a problem.

Be patient. Perhaps seek help with the VideoLAN guys.
