I haven't heard any response about this bug.  What is the procedure
for me to get the issue logged?

> 1. Clear the preferences and media library to start fresh (from

> 2. Add an MP3 file and a corresponding CDG file to a folder.
> 3. Start VLC and open the media library
> 4. Add the MP3 file to the media library
> 5. Double click the newly imported entry  ** the mp3 file plays along
> with the graphics **
> 6. Close VLC and restart it
> 8. Open the media library and double click the song  ** The mp3 file
> plays but no graphics are displayed **
> So basically the graphics/subtitles only work immediately after adding
> the files to the library.  After a restart the graphics/subtitles fail
