[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: libdvdread
Version: 0.9.7-5

libdvdread uses the file length provided by the UDF fs of the title set
IFO files authorative. I got a DVD which have parts of this file mapped
outside of the provided file size and according to my memory only the
offsets in the files matters in the standard.

The attached patch adjusts the internal knowledge of the filesize
accordingly and at least allows mplayer to play the dvd.


I object to intellect without discipline;  I object to power without
constructive purpose.
