Odd issue with Media100i & Bitvice

I've been successfully making DVDs from media 100 & DVD SP via Bitvice for encoding for quite a while but recently something odd has been happening.
When I open media exported from Media100 (by reference or self contained) in Bitvice it has been reporting that Quicktime is giving nonstandard (and usually random) frame rates. No real biggy as you can confirm the 25fps PAL standard (I'm in the UK) when you come to set the encoding parameters.
The problem is that the last GOP often goes past the end of the media resulting in white frames being displayed, and a visible flash of white when the track ends.
I've found a workaround by making the media longer (on black) and pulling the end back in DVDSP until it finds a keyframe, but this is only a quick fix. I've tried placing a compression marker at the end to mark the end point, but this doesn't seem to help.
This has happened under Quicktime 6, and now 7. Any ideas ? Is this a Media 100 thing, an Bitvice thing, or a Quicktime thing ?
