I solved the problem!  It turns out that I had a user job that included 
a call to mythcommflag with the flags '--rebuild -v all'.  I had 
neglected to remove the verbose argument after doing some 
troubleshooting a couple years ago, and it seems that my recent upgrade 
to 0.24 added a few more possible log messages to mythcommflag.  So I 
removed the '-v all' and it went away.

Thanks for all your help!
