I've used kdenlive quite a bit, though usually for very short pieces (ten minutes or so). I think the latest version is supposed to be pretty stable, but I haven't used it yet. It edits mpeg, and has a pretty impressive set of features (to my meagre experience). I tried Cinelerra, Avidemux and one or two others and it was by far the most useful.
Certainly worth trying out at least.
Just me 2c.
