What happens is after you start this video, user interface fonts change. (Becomes bigger and not very good looking, should be easy to notice)

After some tests, I think responsible for this are the attached font in the mkv in combination with moviename (japanese characters, here I mean moviename as appears in showtime, not the filename)

Yeah, this is because the font loading infrastructure is fooled because both are named arial.

I'll have to come up with something good to avoid that.

Thanks for reporting.
