Yes, this is more than enough to break it.  When you do this, you override
all the arguments that the JobQueue normally passes to mythcommflag, so instead
of running something like this:

  mythcommflag -j 5834 -V 3

it was instead just running this:


So mythcommflag was running in its default mode of "flag all unflagged files."

Both SVN trunk and -fixes run the mythcommflag binary that was installed in
same location as your other binaries being run, because the JobQueue uses

  path = gContext->GetInstallPrefix() + "/bin/mythcommflag";

when setting up the command to run, so you shouldn't have to put in a
full-path to mythcommflag in this field.  If you do, then you would need to
put something like this:

  /usr/local/bin/mythcommflag -j %JOBID% -V %VERBOSELEVEL%
