I've seen identical behaviour with the transcoder on occasion.  It is
very odd, since I don't really see anyway that JOB_STOPPING could be
set and you get the 'Transcoding done' message without the application
then immediately terminating.  Yet I don't get a response from the
jobqueue that the app terminated.  Perhaps it would be useful to put a
message right after the myth_system call to ensure it's not getting
lost soemwehere after the return.
