Yup that would be an annoying problem to hit the jump point again.  
Probably you knew this already and this is not your "easy" solution, 
but, just map the key 'm' to somewhere on your remote to get your on 
screen menu (or hit the m button on your keyboard of course, or whatever 
key you mapped it to).  In there is the commercial autoskip option for 
the current recording.  Select the menu item and you get a set of 
checkboxes.  Just hit autoskip off, or notify only.  Have to do it 
sometimes myself for those shows where the commflag is messed up, and it 
skips the commercials in the last 10 min of a show, but skips all the 
way to end of the recording by accident.
