Except when it fails, and corrupts a database table. Then you need to
repair the table - which in extreme cases drops all the data.

Also, when restarting MythTV (e.g. after a crash), it is worth deleting
currently running jobs (status = 4) from the jobqueue, otherwise a
duplicate job will be started.
