Sorry to reply to my own post, but I seem to have fixed the problem and some 
others I was having.   Since I have been unable to find any reference to what 
I did in any FAQ I thought I would post here for those that might be 
experiencing the same.  As well as the problem above, previously although I 
did not experience the problem described above I needed to login as root to 
get it play past the first segment of video.  Now I can watch a complete dvd 
without logging out of my personal account.


1)  Build a new kernel with the udf filesystem in it (as a module)
2) Change the mount point for the /dev/dvd to be
  a) auto file type rather than iso9660
  b) allow users to mount it.

I don't know why these two changes worked - but I can now watch dvds and 
before I couldn't :-)
