cinelerra if you are interested in GUI based tool.

GUI helps make a precise selection of starting/ending point  interactively.

It has its own downsides though: it is slow as it converts the video to raw 
form. Occupies a lot of disk space. Has stability issues etc. But within these 
limits it works well for specific tasks.

I'd suggest a combination of command line (mplayer/ffmpeg) and GUI tool:
Use command line one to get a small piece of the video with approximately 
specified end points and then do a finer job if you need with GUI tool like 

I used this once to rip songs from a VCD where the selection of end points had 
to be very precise.
