Create a file with a single record, set the "Locked Wait" time to 5
seconds.
(or something small).   In the batch job chain to the record and hold it 
locked for update for the whole job.   

In the second job,  Chain and if you have an error on the chain(Use an
error indicator on the chain statement) the other batch job is active.
No matter how the batch jobs end,  the lock will be released.  Its better
than setting some flag that gets "Stuck *ON" if a job ends in error.
