That's because it's interlaced video. You have fields to deal with. And you can never judge the quality of an image using an FCP viewer--it takes a video monitor. If you had one, you would have noticed the problem right away.
PS -- Da Vinci Resolve works pretty darned well as an editor, and it's a free download. So you don't have to use 7-year-old software that hasn't been supported for the past 5 years.

A big problem with DV in the PAL world is that DV is lower field and everything else is Upper (or progressive).
To make the slow mo work if you are using a timeline with Upper like HD ProRes is to bake the slo mo in a separate DV timeline and output it as HD Prores upper (to match your main timeline). Then it will be smooth. As Dave says though you should monitor on an interlaced screen to see if you need frame blending and how the slo mo actually looks.
