I've been pondering this problem myself, and trying to decide how to best
deal with it. One of the ideas I've pondered has been a setting that could
be set to automatically toss out that part of the commercial skiplist
if it encompases the beginning or the end of the recording. 

Ideally we'd have two seperate settings, one for tossing out the first
commercial break if it's at the beginning of the recording, the other for
tossing out the last commercial break if it's at the end of the recording.
This way both situations are covered, and as both Matt's post and my own
show, it's a problem for multiple users in different situations.

What's everyone else think about doing something like that?
