pressing 'z' in play mode just skips commercials.  does that work or 
not?  once you're IN edit mode, you hit 'z' to load the commercial list 
into the cutlist (or deletemap) and then you'll see them as read marks.

i'm still not sure if you're not seeing commercial flagging working (ie. 
'z' during playback doesn't skip) or if you're just not pressing 'z' in 
edit mode to load the comm-breaks in.
