Ric, does sound work OK for you in Kino? I kept losing the audio or 
having sound sync problems the last time I tried it (in Ubuntu 8.10). 
Kino's author indicates that Kino doesn't work well with PulseAudio.

The only video editor that works for me is Avidemux. It seems to be 
designed more for trimming video clips (which it's excellent for) than 
for putting together an edited video. I've used it to edit videos 
together but it's not exactly user-friendly.
