Sounds like you have been trying hard. I'm puzzled.
Open one of the DV files involved in a project that has this problem in QuickTime Player. Do a command-I to review the file specs. Is the audio 16-bit Integer, or something else? I recall in the past that for Final Cut, combining files with different settings could cause issues. Sorry, I don't recall the details. The was that 16-bit was the proper value to always use for miniDV. I'm sure it could be adjusted if need be.
As for QuickTime exports, the quality is dependent on the settings you choose and you have more control over that compared to the Share to iDVD option.
You might want to look at the OS logs while an export is occurring. You can do that by opening Console.app in the Applications/Utilities folder. Perhaps iMovie is spitting out an error of interest. If so, it might
