This can be triggered by either the cutlist editor when you save a new
cutlist or by mythcommflag running commercial flagging on a recording.
Odds are it was commercial flagging running.  Do you have multiple
backends that can run jobs for each other?  It could be that the
transcoding job was running on one machine and the commercial flagger
job fired off on another machine and triggered the transcoder to abort.
This bug has been fixed in current SVN and in the -fixes branch.

Yeah, the MARK_UPDATED_CUT flag is stored in the recordedmarkup table,
so that would have 'fixed' it. :)

It is used for commercial flagging information and the seektables
for MPEG-2 recordings (and also a backup copy of the seektable
for nuppel .nuv recordings and when watching something while it is
still recording and the seektable is not yet saved to the .nuv file).

With current SVN head, the cutlist and bookmarks are now also stored in
this recordedmarkup table.  Eventually the seektable info will be
moved out to its own separate table leaving only the true 'markups'.
