Check for "gaps" between clips. That will sometimes stop the process. The easiest way to check is to use the PgUp or PgDn keys to move from clip to clip. If there is a gap, it takes two key presses to move ahead instead of a single keypress.

Exporting to avi stops returning frames, and Media Encoder crashes while encoding: after spending a few days with Adobe technical support, there are a few troubleshooting steps you should try that are not documented by Adobe.
First, see this link: http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/330380.html If that doesn't work, you are in the same boat we were. The following steps solved the problem.
1) Disable all startup and non-windows services using Run->msconfig
2) Locate your Premiere preferences file in C:\Documents and Settings... move it to a safe location - premiere will now create a new preferences file
3) Disable Hyperthreading, even though the two patches were supposed to fix the hyperthreading problem (sometimes they don't)
4) Hold shift while opening premiere - all the way until the project menu opens: this will rebuild your plugin cache
5) right-click on desktop, Display Settings > Advanced > Troublehooting: move the performance slider two notches back.
6) As mentioned above, fill in ALL gaps with Black Video. This is a time-consuming process for large projects, but neccessary. Adobe has documented this bug for its technicians, but has not posted anything on their website about it.
It may take one or all of the above steps to solve your problem. (Keywords: export error, adobe media encoder error, crashes while rendering, stops returning frames, crashes while exporting, rendering errors)
