Final Cut Express export problem...

Hey all, I'm hoping that someone here can identify why I'm having trouble with my exported files out of final cut express 4.

First of all, the concept behind the video is a type of collage-- there are three different video tracks each cropped evenly to fit on a single screen. It works great and plays perfectly fine in the canvas. Here's a screen shot representing what I mean, and showing how it looks within FCE:

Like I said, it runs fine in the canvas, but when I export the file using a Quicktime conversion, the exported file doesn't play the middle video track. It is mysteriously missing, and I have no idea why. Here's a screenshot of the exported video playing:

The middle slide is missing from the entire exported video. What has happened to it? I have tried exporting it 3 different times now, and it's the same problem every time.

Any advice would be immensely appreciated!
