Problem converting xvid codec movie to mpeg. Weird blank space at end

    I have been trying to convert a movie that I have in the xvid codec so that I can burn it to Dvd-r. I am using TMPGEnc 2.5 and every time that I try to convert it either to a mpeg (with both streams combined) or m2v (with elementary streams seperated). I keep ending up with the movie converted, but with about a hour of black screen after it and no sound at all. If I do m2v I get a m2v file with a blank hour after it and a mp2 file that is basically empty noise, but still takes up the correct amount of disk space.
    I have tried using the normal and high quality settings for TMPGEnc and I have even tried letting different DVD authoring software try to convert it (Ulead DVD Movie factory and DVD-Lab) both of which I have had success letting them convert the files for me in the past.
    I am really stumped on this one. When I play the source file in media player it works fine. No blank spaces or sound problems.
    The movie is xvid codec and here is some info from Gspot
    Runtime 01:35:00 (142,498 fr)
    xy 560x352 (1.59:1) [~8:5]
    bitrate 865 kb/s
    fps 25.000
    Qf 0.176 bits/pixel
    And it says the audio codec is 0x0055(MP3) ID'd as MPEG-1 Layer 3
    bitrate 156 kb/s (78/ch, stereo) VBR LAME3.91
    Fs 44100 Hz

    Any help or ideas are greatly apperciated. I would really like to be able to get this movie converted as I have been trying for about a week now and have been scouring the forums here for a answer and I haven't seen one.. thanks in advance!

    either the avi is damaged, or there's a bug in
    tmpgenc. A couple of suggestions, use
    virtualdub to regenerate the index and make
    a new avi, of use tmpgenc tools to snip
    off the garbage at the end.
