[nSLUG] MPlayer subtitle problem

Picked up a DVD of Henry V (MGM, 1989), no English subtitles on disk
but I downloaded a .srt subtitle file to use with it.  It's the
simple format with entries like:
00:57:52,596 --> 00:57:55,963
and quickly bring us word
of England's fall.
00:59:18,890 --> 00:59:20,482
Come. Come in.
The subtitles work with MPlayer, are synched correctly with the sound
track. But they just stop between the two records in the above
example. After a minute or so, they start again but they go back to
record #1 from the beginning of the prologue.
Google has turned up a very little about a somewhat similar problem
from 2008 but I've downloaded and compiled the most recent version
of MPlayer (1.1).
The subtitle file contains no non-ASCII characters. I tried replacing
the 0D0A linebreaks with just 0A, still fails at the same point. I
can't spot any typos or logical errors near the point of failure such
as "stop before start" or leaps ahead in time.
Before I go off to to dabble in the MPlayer mailing list (where I was
treated rudely the last time I asked a question), does anyone have a
clue, pointer, hack or magic incantation to help me here?
 Hard of hearing, y'know? Speech discrimination loss. DVDs are a
big win for me becuase I can always have English subtitles. Well,
