In my subtitle workflow I discovered a 2-pixel bug which may be the cause here. I use MaestroSBT to generate Scenarist .sst-format subtitles for GUI for dvdauthor/muxman. I worked through the workflow and settings carefully, and no matter how illogical it sounds, I lose a 2-pixel border unless I check 'Minus 2'.
The full settings that work for .sst 720x576 PAL subtitles:
A bug? Isn't Minus 2 the default setting? It is for me (making subs for NTSC). All my BMPs wind up 720x478. In fact, I believe yours (PAL) are supposed to be 'Minus 3'. I could easily be wrong about that, but when I change my MaestroSBT to your 720x576 PAL/SECAM, the check is then beside Minus 3.
But maybe you're right that it's the reason for the OP's problem.
For sure the bitmaps get generated correctly. If memory serves (it was a long time ago that I figured this out), the issue was with the generated .sst script, and/or the combination of that and the bitmaps and the way muxman interprets the lot. (Edit: I.e., the bug, if any, may very well be with muxman in my case.) The .sst script lines
Pixel_Area (0 573) ... Display_Area (0 2 719 575)
Anyway, seeing that the magical "number 2" came up I thought let me just share my experience in case by some chance Walruss' problem is related.

Yes when I open BMP files they have an outline and the text is perfect. But when I open the SST in DVD-Lab Pro the outline just disappears.
Is there an easier way to keep the italic subs in DVD-Lab Pro?
