Are you capturing as DV format, or mpeg2? On the fly mpeg2 capture is more likely to mess up.
If it is straight DV capture, that suggests something misconfigured. Some DV camcorders do not very well synchronize audio and video. Camcorders default to 32khz but for editing, 48khz is a better supported standard. Not only that, it is higher quality.
One of the first things to do with your DV camcorder is to switch the audio recording to 48khz/16 bit.
If the camcorder samples audio at a slightly too low frequency, but does not compensate for it, each frame of video is having some fewer audio samples in it than it should have resulting in a bad capture.
