The problem that you are encountering is caused by the latest version of DVDAuthor, which has, alas, introduced some bugs on UNIX platforms. See below for more comments on this.

That's right. A bug in the latest version of DVDAuthor causes this. If at all possible, I would suggest that you try to install a less recent version of DVDAuthor, for example 0.6.11. That will make the problems go away.

Again this is caused by the latest version of DVDAuthor, which interprets the XML differently from all other previous versions of the same program. And once again, a downgrade to version 0.6.11 will solve all these problems. Another option is to remove the XML attribute that causes the problems (the error that DVDAuthor produces should tell you where to find it).
I am looking into this, but currently I don't have as much time on my hands as I would like.
Thanks for trying Videotrans!
