Encore purposely lagging subtitles?

I've been using Encore for a while now, never done anything with subtitles though. In the foreseeable future, I probably will have to deal with them often.

I brought in a video using Premiere and Dynamic link, then the subtitles through Encore. The video and audio are synced correctly.
Now there's a spot around 02:03:20:00 where the last subtitle shows up.
The specific text from the original video, ripped mkv, along with audio and video confirmation from the converted mp4, and inside both Encore and Premiere, all agree that it should be 02:03:18:08 to 02:03:22:08.
However, in Encore, this changed to 02;03;25;20 - 02;03;29;20. (yes, I selected 'absolute')
Upon exporting it, Encore shot out a different version with all the subs progressively lagging.

Also, why did encore change the notation to semicolons?

Thanks!

Most, if not all DVD authoring software uses internally NTSC-NDF TC.
So any TC-based chapters marks, subs timestamps etc. should be converted to NDF before importing.

Is there any programs that can do that? I tried a mass Find&Replace with MSWord to replace all ":" with ";" but that seems to have broken the format of the file as Encore no longer recognized it.

Simply replacing : with ; does not transform any numbers.

I used WFT (WinFreeTime Calculator 1.0)
This was freeware on mediachance.com, but their website is cleaned up.

If you are interested, I can put it up somewhere.
