Dan has put together a patch that is now in 0.26 to fix this. i tried
compiling the patch against 0.25 but it ended up borking my ability to
watch LiveTV at all, something I wrote another email to this list
about. I don't know if it is why this happened to me, but I am now of
course unable to test if it works backported to 0.25....

but it sounds like 0.26 will fix the issue.

that said, I don't know if it fixes the adding of livetv to the job
queue for commercial flagging, but it should solve the scheduled
recordings while watching livetv issue.
