Not a bug.

Selecting streams via metadata keys cannot be compounded with use of stream specifiers.

e.g. only -map 0:m:language:eng and not -map 0:s:m:language:eng

And mapping using stream specifiers may only be suffixed with a stream index.

e.g. -map 0:s:2 to select the third subtitle stream of input 0.

Okay, but wait :)

About this "e.g. -map 0:s:2 to select the third subtitle stream of input 0."
I will show you a "strange code":

ffmpeg.exe -i input.mkv -map 0:s -map -0:m:language:rus ""

If you have a input.mkv file with one russian and one english subtitles
It will return english subtitles file ""

But if you use this code:

ffmpeg.exe -i input.mkv -map 0:s -map -0:m:language:eng ""

It will return russian subtitles file ""

Also it works with audio streams:
If you have a input.mkv file with:
one russian,
one ukrainian,
one english,
two japanese
audio streams.

ffmpeg.exe -i TEST_Input.mkv -map 0:a -map -0:m:language:rus -map -0:m:language:ukr -map -0:m:language:jpn -report "TEST_output.ac3"

This code delete rus, ukr and jpn streams. And return "TEST_output.ac3" - with eng audio stream.
I add new log

I know this is strange but it works :)

Not strange. Those command use negative mappings.

e.g. -map 0:s -map -0:m:language:rus maps all subtitle streams and then removes mapped streams whose language is Russian, so leaving only the English stream.

Thanks :) I get it :) I get this logic :)

Now, I have code that returns only eng sub:

ffmpeg.exe -i TEST_Input.mkv -map 0:m:language:eng -map -0:a -map -0:v ""

But I believe that you will add this feature soon -map 0:s:m:language:eng :)

Thanks a lot :)
