Interesting I did change JobQueueCommFlagCommand

From: mythcommflag
To:   /usr/local/bin/mythcommflag

To make sure Myth was picking up my svn .20-fixed self compiled version over
the ubuntu package I installed when I got first built the box.

Your saying is a big enough change to cause my problem?  I'll change it back
and see if the problem is fixed.

It does, but it appears that you have messed with the mythcommflag command
mythtv-setup and the JobQueue is no longer passing the right arguments to
mythcommflag when it runs, so mythcommflag just runs and processed any
unflagged recordings, not the one that is currently recording.
