Not sure how you worked it Simon, but make sure that the clips are on different video tracks and if you can make them chronological order. If you are able to "ball park" the audio and clips and drop markers in, then use markers in plural eyes, it seems to also help the trouble areas. I shot something with 7Ds and 5Ds recently and it worked well. Though it sounds like it was not as much on/off during the audio as what you had going. I also shot about 50 minutes straight through at a show, couple of HDV cams left running and a 5D, which went on and off alot, and it was able to synch out to the audio track from the HDV cams.
Yes each audio track was on a different timeline. It was very on/off on the video (talking heads who kept getting their lines wrong!), but we just let the audio run on most of the time. I'm sure if I'd stopped the audio more often it would have coped better. More than anything it just surprised me as it had coped so well up till now.
