If you have already queued a transcode job, you should only modify the
cmd field.  You  should not completely overwrite the line, as a
currently running job will get very confused.  To stop, you send it a
stop cmd, for instance.  You should not change any other fields
besides the cmd field.  Directly manipulating the status is bad.  Only
the jobqueue should change the status field.  I am unclear as to why
you are trying to recreate an already queued (or running) job.  maybe
I'm missingsomething here?

Does that help?
