I have this problem with some shows, too, including Almost Live.   
It's especially annoying because you can't use the skip back button  
to see what you missed, because Myth has already exited video playback.

Maybe there should be an option to tell the commercial flagger to not  
flag the last X minutes of the show.  Or maybe Myth shouldn't auto- 
skip if it would take it to the end of the file.
