Yes, it was a retrograde step on Corel's part to ever think that DVD Factory "Pro" 2010 was a decent replacement for previous burning modules, and it does all the awful things you list plus some more. And yes, MF 7 SE has its own drawbacks -- though is still a much better program than DVD Factory.
But only a moderate adjustment of your workflow could produce an acceptable outcome with MF 7 SE, and that workflow has also been described here many times, and has been used from time immemorial by many of us here, even before VS X3 and MF 7 ever appeared.
First, forget about setting your chapter points in X3.
Next, insert a new step before your current step 4. Instead of jumping immediately to "Creat Disc", choose "Create Video File" instead. If you are burning a standard def DVD and your project is an hour or less long, then choose Create Video File > DVD. If longer than an hour, then choose Custom and adjust the bitrate downwards to match the length of your project (6000 kbps = 90 minutes; 4000 kbps = 2 hours). Make sure your Field Order matches that of your original AVI video which (if it is DV/AVI as I suspect) will be Lower Field First.
Once you have produced this new DVD-compatible mpeg-2 of your edited project, open MF 7 SE and insert that new file. You create your chapter points in MF 7. Edit your menu, including your own choice of music, and burn.
This time, it should burn without that unspecified error, which was probably generated by trying to convert the video as part of the burning process. If you check in the Options cogwheel icon down in the bottom left hand corner of MF 7, ensure the box beside "Do not convert compliant MPEG video" is checked, and no conversion will take place since you already have a DVD-compliant video.
Nor are you losing any time with this workflow. The conversion process AVI > MPEG-2 will take the same time, whether as part of X3 or MF 7. And you have more certainty of a successful outcome if the conversion is done in X3 as the final editing step, rather than as part of the already complicated enough process of burning video to a DVD.
