Well, after a period of stubborness, I finally DID try avidemux.
And that worked, really well.  

Commercial_cut worked too, but when I tried to use it on the
program with the musical clip I wanted, it turned out a 38-byte
file.  Of course, 38 bytes is just a tad short of enough to hold
a five-minute video clip.

Thanks for your two-word message of advice.  It turned out to be
THE answer.
