Default Superman Returns - movie pauses when viewing list of special features?

On my XBox 360 HD-DVD add-on drive, Superman Returns pauses when you view the list of special features. I can bring up the first layer menu without the movie pausing, and scroll through chapters without the movie pausing, but the movie freezes as soon as I go to the list of special features. This does not happen with other movies.

Is this supposed to happen? Is the Superman Returns HD-DVD disc programmed to do this? Or is this a defective disk or a 360 firmware problem?

It is simply how it is authored. For some reason the authoring of "Superman Returns" has it pause when you go into "Special Features", it is a design decision - every title can do it differently.

I've noticed this on a few Warner titles. I think this is based on how many special features are on the disc. Once the menu blocks a certain amount of space, the movie pauses itself. At least, that's what I've noticed.
