[mythtv] crash in mythbackend

Any reason it can't just run in a separate process? From my cursory 
reading it doesn't *want* to share any data with the main mythbackend 
process. So, it would seem simpler to spawn a new mythbackend process 
with a command line of "--flag-commercials <chan> <datetime>" and not 
have to worry about sharing any state inappropriately. Just say no to 
threads (when they aren't necessary).
