I had the same thing last week.  I thought it had to do with recording 
across midnight (trying to catch the US Olympic basketball game).  So I 
chalked it up to a single glitch.  But since you've had the same 
problem, apparently it is not just a "one time" problem.

In my case, I'm running CentOS 5.1, MythTV version ivtv 0.21, ivtv 
version 0.10.6-132.el5, and a Hauppauge PVR-350.

In my case it only happened once.  But shortly after it happened, I did 
change the commercial flagging routine to _not_ be done during the 
initial recording.  I don't recall exactly why I made the change other 
than something in the logs suggested that the simultaneous flagging 
might be related to the problem.

Perhaps others have had and solved the same problem.

Good luck.
