An experiment to help confirm/refute this hypothesis is to set up a
find-once scheduled recording on a non-commercial-free channel. In the
post-processing options, turn off commercial-flagging.

If I am correct, the recording will be commflagged anyway (on an
unpatched mythbackend), because the hard-coded default value for
commflagging is "true".
