The original clip is an APple ProRes file and the new one is H.264, but I don't see how that would create the problem.
That is exactly the problem. FCP-7 does not work correctly with H.264 media. Convert the H.264 source file to ProRes, then use that converted file in your sequence.

Thanks, Meg The Dog! I've edited with H.264 clips many times before and never had this problem but maybe I've just been lucky. Any idea why rendering it doesn't make it play correctly, since, in effect, that creates a new file in the right format?

Working with h.264 is FCP just trouble. You were lucky.
Rendering just takes the screwed-up non-standard file and makes it screwed-up rendered file.
