Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Manually rescan library?

I noticed something similar to this last night on my friend's ubuntu
machine (running whatever version of RB an up-to-date "edgy" ships).
I scp'd some music over to her machine into her RB's watched music
directory and half the music had import errors (but not all!). The
connection between our machines was really slow, so I'm guessing RB
was trying to get all the metadata out when it wasn't all there on
some of the files. Playing those scp'd files in xmms works fine. Also,
those files that had import errors never were imported into the RB DB
even after fully downloaded (and waited a few hours).

What do you think the expected behavior should be? Re-check imported
files that failed a few times?

I use RB to do the import with a gstreamer pipeline which leaves no
wav intermediaries.  If RB watches my library all of the mp3s show up
as import errors with RB stating that the MIME type can not be
identified.  I'm guessing this is because RB sees the files when they
are initially created and are almost empty.  So even hidden wav files
might not help.
