When looking in file information of the exported file, it shows that the video is progressive. It seems that the new Media Encoder 5.5 doesn't merge the fields right. So the result is a progressive video with incorrect merged fields. This looks like interlaced video.
Were the field interpretted correctly in the first place? Even if you think they are, try reversing them. I've just been through hell doing something similar with a mishmash of client material from around the world.
In some instances I switched field order (In the File>Modify) although it didn't seem logical. In others, I used AE CS5.5 to added the Reduce Interlace Flicker filter.
I already know the problem with the illogical field interpratation of Premiere. In this case this is not the solution. After several tests I am sure that this is a major bug in Media Encoder 5.5. I reported this to Adobe and I hope that there will be a fix available soon.

I assume that you filed a Bug Report. Is that correct?
Yes, thank you!
More then a year later, this "bug" still exsists, I was totally irritated by the horizontal lines in my Mpeg4 output, but thanks to your post I will try the export button and will send the result.
