FCP to iDVD - preview has an overlay of green and pink squares.

I've been using FCP 7.0.3 to make two basic movies. I exported the projects to Quicktime, self-contained, and the files play wonderfully. I burned a few DVD samples using iDVD (7.1.2), in which the two movies can be selected from the main DVD menu - this came out fine. Here is my problem: I needed to make changes in FCP (audio adjustments and subtitle text) several times, which resulted in my trashing the Quicktime files, and exporting updated versions from FCP. I plugged these into iDVD a few more times, and burned the disc without any problems. However, on my most recent attempt in iDVD, when previewing the movie, it showed up with a bunch of green and pink squares across the entire screen. All of my previous attempts did not have this. The files play fine in Quicktime. I trashed the iDVD project, and created a new one - same result. I trashed my iDVD preferences and restarted - same result. I ran Repair Permissions - same result. Does anyone know how to get rid of these colored squares?
