Default Double superimposed subtitles - mpeg2 file

I have a movie in mpeg2 format along with the appropriate subtitle (srt) file. When I play the movie there are duplicate subititles, superimposed. One set is adjustable, can be resized and turned on and off, the other set is fixed in a larger font and can't be turned off, resized, etc.

At first I thought the fixed set was burned in, but if I rename the srt file both sets of subtitles disappear. Also, spelling corrections made in the srt file apply to both sets of subtitles.

Most of my movies are in DivX (avi) format and don't have this problem. I'm not absolutely sure it applies only to mpeg2, but it seems as if it does.
