Actually, I have access to both FCP7 and FCPX but I'm rather busy.
Luckily Robert offered to test. I have a sneaking suspicion lavf's MOV
output doesn't work well with either version to begin with, but I
haven't checked closely.

Oh yeah, I need to be a bit more specific: these files already have
SPS/PPS stripped, so it may rather be a case of avcC or glbl not being
supposed to be written. Furthermore, AVC-Intra *with* SPS/PPS in the
video essence may need to be stripped as well.

I suspect this mess is due to Avid or Apple going "well, if we put
SPS/PPS in the first packet the file is no longer CBR, and it'll go
missing if we cut the video, so we'd better strip them anyway" instead
of "let's just add SPS/PPS to all packets".
