There are two types of captions, one that buffers a line and display

the caption stream. The second form is most often used in live programs
such as TV news. The behavior you described matches exactly the
behavior of mplayer when it is is playing a Tivo mpeg with the second
form of captioning. Since that CC section is iself borrowed from yet
another player, and that in turn may have come from yet another one.
many players you will find may ultimately share the same bad behavior.
The right behavior should have been a character is shown immediately
when the CC operator types the key.
For replayTV support, I hacked the DVD CC section to make it work
with the second form of captioning, as it was too much trouble to
borrow Tivo's section and then make to make it work acceptibly well.

However, I was never able to get that converted. What I did was install Vobsub. Set it to show the captions text to the lower left corner, under launch config dialog. Then the text appears to be pop-up and not roll-up.
