  totem fails to recognize mkv-header crop values

Status in Totem:
Status in totem package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  MKV-file headers may contains values to be used for players affecting
  top-, left-, right-, and bottom-pixels cropping. Totem does not
  currently recognize those header values, and just ignores them.

  This can be demonstrated using the mkvmerge GUI program and its header
  editor to fiddle with such values, and them running the resulting
  files through totem. Another player than totem (VLC) was tried, which
  recognized those values, and therefore cropped the video upon playing
  to remove the annoying border flickering that was experienced in that
  given file, without the need for the stream to be reencoded, and
  either suffering from a deterioration in quality, or becoming huge
  through lossless reencoding. (Consider this as an argument for the
  pertinence of this bug.)

  This bug can be experienced under Precise, using the as-of-current
  latest build of totem.
