I think we're a few years too early - I'm just starting to look at video editing, and everything I've tried is half-baked and alpha-quality software. Assuming a powerful-enough machine, the only current option is VMWare plus Windows XP plus some commercial Windows software - or a second machine running Windows.
Does someone else know better and can indicate a usable, functional package for Linux?

Can you fiddle with quality settings at all? You might want to set a high quality on your captures, and see if there is an option to force the use of only I frames. This will at least give you video that is more suitable for editing.
Even if an editor doesn't specifically support Theora as input, you might (depending on the design of the editor) be able to pipe the input through ffmpeg to convert.
