Thanks for the tip. I think I confused Kdenlive by dragging around the
ogg file and chopping bits off the ends while fades were applied,
trying to get the song to sync up with some of the visual aspects of
the video clips from my camera.

I solved it in the end by just removing the ogg file, and adding it
back in, moving it to where I wanted it, making sure that I had no
fades applied while chopping it down to size, and then fading in and
out the final result.
