I can't directly help you with your oproblem, but
here's a suggestion I use (for NTSC non-HD content):

I let it do the comm flagging as usual.  I have the
player set to "do nothing" when encountering a break.

I use the "Z" and "Q" keys (mapped to teh remote) to
skip commercials, once the commercial has started.  I
get a much better experience that way, since at least
the bad commercial *start* flags don't really affect
me.  Works great.
