This was never really guaranteed to work, but I reenabled it anyway.  The
code used to keep the commercial skip markers when you transcoded without
applying the cutlist (such as in auto-transocding) although there was no
guarantee that the markers were still accurate since the frame numbers
might not match up exactly.  Somewhere along the line, I think I removed
that code while cleaning up other issues.  I added the code back in so
the JobQueue will not remove the commercial markers unless the cutlist
has been applied.

Can you update again and let me know if it's not fixed?
