weird stuttery audio thing at end of clips in timeline

So this is odd.

As I've mentioned in other threads, I'm working on an animated project whose elements will be assembled in FCP.

I've been working with the sound for the past month or so, and I've noticed recently, though I can't say for sure it hasn't been there all along, that on certain dialogue clips in the timeline, when I play the audio, right at the very end of the clip, the last sound, consonant, vowel, whatever, will kind of "stutter". For instance, if the last word in a clip is "fast", it'll sound like "fast-t-t". It doesn't "really" (as in, the source material) sound like that, and it's not on every clip.

It's repeatable, but here's a weird thing. I have a compression and EQ applied to every dialogue clip, usually the same settings. If I simply uncheck (turn off), and recheck one of those filters in the viewer for a problematic clip, stutter goes away. Or i I switch their order. But if I then select the clip and render (even when it doesn't tell me it needs to render), the stutter comes back.

This is not simply a playback issue. . .I took a stuttery clip and exported it as an AIF and listened to it in my QT player, and there it was. So what I hear is what I get upon export, it seems.

Anyone dealt with this?

You may want to dry deleting all the audio render files and re-rendering from scratch. That could clear it up. Sometimes when you re-render Final Cut jumbles things.
