i'm using right know the windows binaries but OpenBSD (4.5) port gave
same results, it prints a total of 20 audiostreams (from 0 to 19) but 
none of
them have audio and also the VOB have more than 20 subtitles.

I have encoded VOB files (from DVDs) before with this same binary so
I discarded that issue.

I will give it a try, I didn't knew it , thanks!

the program "SUPER" (for windows) didn't helped at all, it have a menu
with 21 stream options.
