Thanks to Raymond Wagner and Michael Watson for their help.
I also hunted around in sql a little in thejobqueue table, but it seemed
safer to leave it alone.
Should I file a bug about these problems with mythtranscode? The recent
one where it went into an infinite loop was the worst, but there have
been other failures as well. It is likely the underlying video file was
garbled because of signal problems, but it would be nice if the program
could handle bad inputs better.
But a bug w/o the file doesn't seem worth much, and the file is too big
to upload reasonably....
