 In other words, the dvdsub encoder considers that the transparent light
 gray is slightly nearer opaque yellow than transparent black. The culprit
 is {{{color_distance()}}} in {{{dvdsubenc.c}}}. A quick fix would be to
 get it to return 0 when both alphas are 0. A possibly better fix would be
 to multiply everything by alpha, i.e. consider the colors as a cone rather
 than an hypercube. Do you have any preference?
