Yeah, I saw that, and considered that.  If it comes to that, I would
really prefer to change the logging so that the SELECT statements
don't get logged, but the data modifying statements do.

It seems that the table recordedmarkup is getting INSERT statements in
groups of 60 every 10-15 seconds along with SELECTs and UPDATEs
from/to jobqueue.  So, this probably during commercial flagging.

I guess that I'd like to configure mythtv to suspend flagging jobs
during playback.  I have it set to flag during recording, but it is
really annoying during playback.

I didn't see any way to change this.  Ideas?
