I've seen this behaviour, too, when watching DVDs on VLC. Sometimes the
highlight won't appear until you move the mouse onto one of the items in
the DVD menu.

The items are correctly selected, though - if you press enter, it will
activate the selected item, and arrows navigate as usual. It's just a bit
problematic not being able to see what is currently selected :)

It's a bug somewhere in the DVD menu handling. I think it's safe to say
that no one has taken a look at it.

As the issue affects me, too, I might try to figure it out later, but my
RealLife (TM) is fairly busy at the moment, so I can't promise anything.
