This is a known issue with the old playbin element. If I remember
correctly, it will usually show the new subtitles after a flushing seek
though. In totem this was ok when the user moved the seek slider, but it
didn't work reliably when doing a flushing seek to the current position
You could try the newer playbin2 element. I think the issue is fixed
there (but if not, we'll fix it).
