I don't think there is a flag. The recovery only happens when you first open WMC after whatever happens. As far as I can tell, if you have WMC closed for 20 days through 4 garbage cleanups, it works fine until you open WMC and at which point it sees something it doesn't like and triggers a recovery.

In my experience, if Media Center is already open, it will continue to work perfectly fine until you close and re-open. There must be something which it only checks on launch. Perhaps a checksum in the database which is not being updated correctly. It pops up instantly and so it does not appear to be running a full integrity check at that point.
