If the table were corrupt, you would need to re-create the seektable 
information (and commflagging info, if desired) to fix the playback 
problems.  To fix the seektable:

mythcommflag --rebuild -f <filename>

To re-run commercial flagging, after rebuilding the seektable (as 
above), run:

mythcommflag -f <filename>

You can also specify channel and starttime instead of filename.  See 
"mythcommflag --help" for more options.

Note that now that you've cleared the table, all your recordings should 
have issues with seeking.  You can rebuild seektables/commflag all 
recordings with the "--all" option.
