- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
  Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
  disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
  It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
  gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
  DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
  won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

I know I should probably recompile mplayer... But if someone with debug enabled version can have a look at problematic sub, that would be really nice))
If not, I'll try to build mplayer from source in few days.

Subtitle in ASS format which caused crash.

I had the same problem and I found this

Apparently it's a memory leak in libass
