OK to clarify, this is the video that the Windows based converter created that plays OK on your BB device?

EDIT: great news, I was able to simply use ffmpeg and it's defaults to create a MP4 container out of 4 test videos that were giving me a problem, and they all play 100% fine on my BB. A sample bit of output looks like:

Input #0, asf, from 'zpsy.wmv':
  Duration: 00:07:14.4, start: 4.000000, bitrate: 308 kb/s
    Stream #0.0: Audio: wmav2, 44100 Hz, stereo, 128 kb/s
    Stream #0.1: Video: wmv2, yuv420p, 320x240 [PAR 0:1 DAR 0:1], 172 kb/s,  7.50 tb(r)
Output #0, mp4, to 'zpsy.mp4':
    Stream #0.0: Video: mpeg4, yuv420p, 320x240 [PAR 0:1 DAR 0:1], q=2-31, 200 kb/s,  7.50 tb(c)
    Stream #0.1: Audio: libfaac, 44100 Hz, stereo, 64 kb/s
Things need to be tuned up to decrease the artifacts (increase the quality) in the video stream, but it's at least a starting point to make it work. I haven't tried mencoder yet, I may not even bother if ffmpeg can do the job for me.
