So far, they've fixed two editions of this DVD. For region 2&4 and region 4. Maybe you're quite interested what tricks the producer did on it.
OK, let's do a simple explanation. The dvd doesn't have cell command needed to handle, but has a lot of fake VTS and PGC, and the menu of the first VTS is fake. For region 2,4 edition, it seems it's a theater edition, there's only one real title, which is title 60. But for region 4 edtion, there're multile real titles.
