In theory, default duration should never be set for subtitles in mkv.  
But it could be, and if it were it would overwrite this with a  
meaningless value.

At any rate, I think putting this in av_find_stream_info is better,  
perhaps unconditionally for all subtitles since they have to convert  
an AVPacket pts to milliseconds.
