Since upgrading to .25-fixes, my slave backend has decided to error on
commercial detection.  If I look at my backend log, I see:

2012-09-06 16:32:26.352429 I [6825/10080] Commflag_6848
jobqueue.cpp:2276 (DoFlagCommercialsThread) - JobQueue: Commercial
Detection Starting for "Blah" recorded from channel 1051 at
2012-09-06 16:32:26.450483 E [6825/10080] Commflag_6848
jobqueue.cpp:2362 (DoFlagCommercialsThread) - JobQueue: Commercial
Detection Errored: "Blah" recorded from channel 1051 at
2012-09-06T16:00:00 (Failed with exit status 140)

Restarting the backend will fix the problem - for a while.  What is
"exit status 140", and how do I fix it?

I've also noticed that when this happens, the backend stops generating
the preview image for MythWeb:

2012-09-06 16:37:00.095873 E [6825/10083] HttpServer50
previewgenerator.cpp:254 (Run) - Preview: Encountered problems running
'/usr/bin/mythpreviewgen --size 100x56 --chanid 1301 --starttime
20120906060000 --outfile
--verbose general --logpath /var/log/mythtv --loglevel info --quiet'

If I run the command manually, I don't get the error, and the preview
works fine.
