   -32766 is usually badComponentSelector, 0x80008002, cast to a long.

   My guess is that it is failing because the export component does  
not implement a selector iMovie/QuickTime requires for the type of  
export iMovie does. I would add logging to the component dispatch  
routine to see what is being called.
