OK, I now have a better description of this "feature" after I figured 
this out:

I have two networked mythtv boxes.  If the pre-recorded file resides on 
the *remote* machine from the watch/edit console, pressing "Z" on the 
(watch/edit) box has no effect.

And if I recall correctly in mythtv 0.8 the commercials became marked 
("red") if "Z" was pressed in watch or edit mode.  In the current cvs 
commercials would only be marked if you're in edit mode.  Personally I 
don't really see why commercials shouldn't become *automatically* marked 
(in edit mode) if "automatically flag" is checked.
