OK, I wanted to make sure I hadn't missed setting commfree with my other
changes a while back.

For everyone else's info, I have also made mods in my tree to set
the COMM_FLAG_COMMFREE status on a recording when the recording starts
instead of waiting for it to finish.  This way even if a backend goes
down during recording on a commfree channel, the recording will be
marked properly.  I also made modifications to NuppelVideoRecorder to
not waste time doing blank frame detection during recording on commfree

Should get those mods into CVS sometime tonight.
