If you run mythbackend and mythfrontend with the "-v commflag" option, then
you'll be able to see the commflag update messages that are sent when
a recording is being watched while it is being flagged (whether it is
recording still or not).

It could be that it thought it detected a commercial break, then before you
could skip the break, the flagger reran the detection and realized it was
not a break so it sent out another update.
