OE, source material, project settings or export settings are the likely cause.
The best thing to do here is export your video to a new clip which is widescreen, then bring that clip into a new, standard project and scale it down to fit the SD frame (about 74% if I remember right...)
This is one area where CS4 will be helpful- edit in widescreen sequence, then drop into SD sequence and scale to fit- no clip exporting needed. :)
I disagree with Justin, Eddie's got a pretty big list, I think Harm's on the right track but I will clarify one point.
Is your DV footage letterboxed or anamorphic?
You can check by clicking on the clip in the bin. Up next to the thumbnail, you will see some information about the clip. If the PAR is (.9), then your clip is letterboxed and you should be editing in a normal 4:3 preset and exporting a normal 4:3 image.
Only if the PAR says (1.2) is your footage true widescreen (anamorphic).
