I seem to recall either the select or menu button on my remote popping a 
dialog that let me delete jobs. Of course, now I try that just now, looking 
at some jobs that recently ran to completion, and all I get is the requeue 
choices. Odd. It was just a few days ago that a job that didn't run 
successfully was sitting in there, and one of the menu choices was to delete 
the job...
