It sounds like this might be something to do with file monitoring.  You
could try disabling file monitoring (the 'watch my library for new
files' option in the library preferences) to see if that's the case.

Getting some strace output might also be helpful.  If you could run
'strace -p `pidof rhythmbox` -o rb-strace' for a few seconds while this
is happening and put the resulting file somewhere (please don't send it
to the whole list) we'd be able to see what was going on.  Output from
'ls -l /proc/`pidof rhythmbox`/fd' might also be required to figure out
what's happening.
