I bet that is my problem.  I mean the software stack has improved
tremendously -- I have been using zeche's patches and the terminal keyboard,
and have been really happy, except for the slowness...  I haven't been able
to figure out what to do or what the problem is, but this sounds like the
main cause...  I would definitely like to turn off the scanning or tell it
only to scan (or exclude) certain directories...  This would make such a big

The patch that was listed, I'm not sure I can translate that into my thought
from above... Would a setting of ContentDatabase=0 turn off the scanning.
I'm not interesting in prescans of the media files... I would rather
manually create play lists of find them with a file chooser.
