The cover art extension is what pops up the job in the lower-left
corner and tries to get cover art for all items in your library. It
just calls the same method for fetching cover art that is ran when you
play a song, but it does it for everything all at once, basically.
If you're running trunk, you can disable network feature under
Preferences and Banshee should not go to the network for anything
(some things still might at the moment, but cover art shouldn't).
There is no way to turn off embedded and local-folder cover art
fetching, though, and they're always the first run. It sounds like
there's a bug or there's bad metadata out there such that the embedded
fetch job is failing to find anything.
