Have you tried editing the same file on both frontends to see if hitting
'Z' to copy the commercial list to the cutlist works on either?

Can you skip commercials using the skip list correctly when trying to
play back the file on Alice?

You said that the cutlist remains null, have you tried checking whether
the commBreakMap QMap which has the commercial break list has items in
it when you try to go into edit mode.  Around line 2240 in
NuppelVideoPlayer.cpp is where it assigns the comm break list to the
cutlist when you hit 'Z'.  You can try inserting some debug cout or
printf's there to see if the data is being copied correctly.
