You may have something on a track that you cannot see. Some video tracks may have scrolled up out of the timeline panel, or some audio tracks may have scrolled down out of the timeline panel. There is very likely something on one of those tracks that is causing the timeline to extend to that point. You can delete unused tracks very easily to try to find the errant clip.
Export to DV AVI until you get what you want then try using esoteric formats like DivX.
You will find links to many free tutorials in the Premiere Pro Wiki that will quickly show you how things are done in PPro.

THANK YOU!!! I went to that 23 minute mark and hit my left arrow key and saw this errant video blip. Zoomed way in and, sure enough!!! Delete and good to go!
Now if anyone can tell me why divx conversion did away with my transitions....

I can't. But have you tried different settings?
Since divx reproduces at a relatively high quality [for the stage6 website] what settings other than avi will give me both the size [almost full screen] and virtually lossless or close to it?
Virtually lossless and DivX are a contradictio interminis.
Sorry for my ignorance. What I mean is - if you've seen stage6 - the videos are much clearer than youtube. I want to start out with something clearer than a small little youtube style video. I'm trying the divx codec in premiere and see how that works.
**UPDATE** The divx coded AVI looked worse. :(
