Summary0015504: Adding files to the library triggers podcast scan
DescriptionI started MM5, and MM did a podcast update. Then about 10 minutes later, I added a local directory to be scanned, and at the conclusion of the scanning process (100/101 files) the process seemed to be stuck. When I ran dbgview at this point, it showed that MM was updating podcasts, however:
- this shouldn't have been necessary considering that they'd already been updated recently
- even if it was necessary for some reason, there should have been a status indicator showing that a podcast update was occurring, since had I not run dbgview I would have thought that MM5 was frozen.

Unfortunately, I only have a partial log of this, but hopefully you'll the the issue in the code. If not, re-assign to me and I'll try to replicate.
TagsNo tags attached.

Based on the log you scanned a folder with podcast episodes that haven't been in library yet -- and MM was associating the newly scanned episodes to corresponding podcast subscriptions based on metadata (genre = "podcast", title = episode title).
This is related to 0004588

Let's suggest a wording to the progress bar for this feature.
In MM4 this feature is too (and without wording).

Maybe something like "Associating newly scanned podcast episode %s to subscription %s" ?

Used existing "Updating podcast" suffixed by podcast title and episode title in brackets like:
"Updating podcast ... podcast name (episode title)" with proper progress value ( done/total episodes to associate)

I observed this problem again, but can't figure out how to replicate. It's quite strange though because only _podcasts_ from C:/Users/Russell/Music are scanned (rather than the entire content of that directory). I'll keep my eyes open...

Regardless, re. wording: 'Update Podcast' implies that content is downloading, so it should only be used if that's actually the case. In the specific case described (where Podcasts are being scanned into the library), it would be more appropriate to just show the regular scanning message, but adjust it for podcasts e.g. 'Adding x of y' (Updating podcast... PodcastName (EpisodeTitle)'.
