I wonder if you need to turn on the "Skip Unflagged Commercials"
setting on the "Commercial Skip" settings screen?

And if you do need to turn that on, then maybe the code that checks
that setting should be changed to allow commercial skip attempts in a
program that hasn't been completely flagged, if that program's
flagging has started, and realtime flagging is enabled?

I guess when the "Skip Unflagged Commercials" setting is turned off,
it should still always allow skipping a commercial if it can tell
where the end is.  It's just that now, with realtime flagging, we have
a more complex method of figuring that out that we should try before
showing the dreaded "Not Flagged" message.
