More data points:

This still happens with xine and ogle (both complain they can't read the
DVD) but gmplayer reads the dvd without problems (but it doesn't display
it right, there are two narrow copies of the video instead a wide one;
same problem with mplayer).

When running mplayer or gmplayer, no "Copy Protection Key Exchange Failure"
messages are inserted in the messages log.

I wonder if there's anything I can do to make xine work with these discs?
xine works just fine with commercial dvd's.
