FYI, the best DV format available is Raw DV. While AVI is intended to be 
more interoperable, it ends up introducing compatibility issues. :-/

I have run into the AVI length problem previously in supporting the Kino 
import script. As a result, I changed the approach. It was not a DV AVI, 
rather another codec. It is possible with the way MLT was built, a 
FFmpeg upgrade did not upgrade the libs MLT is using.

I wanted to capture the footage looking correctly in Kdenlive with a screen capture program, but I have since had other issues which now maked my whole Kdenlive pretty unusable :(  (I sent that email out shortly after Export issue; its subject was Corrupt Timeline and I can send it again if needed)
If you have the XML project file, that would be great to have. I will 
use my own large DV AVI files with it.
