Interlacing problem - Is this universal?

I'm having a problem with interlacing, and I'm wondering if this is a common problem with a common solution or if I should just go poke around in the settings of my various programs some more.

My original footage looks fine. I import it to FCE, where it continues to look fine. When I change the speed of a clip, it looks faintly blurry but mostly fine as long as I'm playing it in FCE. When I export it, however, the clips with speed changes, and only those clips, end up with horrible interlacing problems. I've tried a few different export settings, and the problem is consistent.

Am I just not understanding how changing the speed of a clip works?
