    Assuming I'm understanding the situation right, you should be able to go ino
    the frontend -> Info -> Job Queue, you can select jobs and delete them there.

Err, well, almost.  I can -see- them there, but I have no idea how to
delete them.  I don't know what event name I should use to map to a
button on my remote, so I tried running mythfrontend in an X window
on a machine with a keyboard attached to it, but of -course- "?" doesn't
show any self-documentation, and none of mMdD do anything, and I can't
seem to find anything on the web documenting what valid commands might
exist in this window, so I'm still stumped.

Any ideas?  If I navigate into that window with rightarrow, I can
scroll up & down over the jobs, and hitting Enter on one gives me
a menu that says "Requeue Job?" with choices of Yes and No.  But I
sure don't see a choice to -delete- the job...
