No, his jobs actually ran, went to "stopping" and never made it out, the
backend stayed up the whole time.  I've looked at his logs and can't tell
what is happening by looking at them, I do know though that the JobQueue should
print out a success/fail message after the myth_system() call finishes, so it
appears that may not be finishing.  The transition to JOB_STOPPING is just about
the last thing that mythtranscode does before exitting, so I'm not 100% sure
that this is the case, but want to verify since I know the JobQueue should also
be printing out something right after mythtranscode finishes but I don't see this
in the logs.
