[ALUG] AV manipulation

I have two AV tasks I need to perform, which are otherwise unrelated...

1. I have some video for which the sound is out of sync. The video files 
use an XviD codec (not sure what sound codec). I'm looking for a tool to 
allow me to correct them. Ideally I want something I can just use 
left/right arrow keys to jog the sound a small amount ahead or behind 
the video until it's correct, then hit save to create a new file. It all 
ought to be pretty quick (no recompression needed, just 
re-synchronising). Any suggestions?

2. I want to take some audio files and slow them down (quite a lot) 
without changing their pitch. I'm trying to learn to play the guitar and 
I can't play fast enough to play alongside anything yet unless I can 
slow it right down!

My desktop is Ubuntu 9.04 if that's relevant.
