I thought that the whole point of mutipass divx encoding is to achieve
a better quality at the same bitrate. Am I wrong here?
Are you sure you specified the same bitrate for both experiments?

And, just for benchmark purposes, have you tried a low bitrate for
both one-pass and three-pass, so you can see the differences easier?
