Are you giving an absolute or relative filename to mythcommflag? In  
other words are you going:

cd /path/to/video
mythcommflag filename.mpg

or is it:

mythcommflag /path/to/video/filename.mpg

It'll take either but only the absolute path is usable for editing or  
seeking. I checked this on my .21-ish rig, trunk might be different  
but anyway it's worth a try.
