No, it's a problem with monitoring files not in the watched directory.
I'll try to give a clearer example.

Say you set your "music directory" to ~/Music, and manually add the file
~/Downloads/some-song.mp3 to listen to.

It will notice new files/folders in ~/Downloads while running. This
means that if you downloaded ~/Downloads/another-song.mp3 while
Rhythmbox is running, it would automatically get imported. It will also
notice if you create the folder ~/Downloads/new-folder/, and monitor
that too.

Making it not do that would be a matter of checked each detected new
file, to see if it was somewhere under the watched directory.
