I get this a lot with all mp3 files on OSX. It might
have something to do with the server scanning the
library. I did notice that turning on “Cache” in
server settings:performance:music library database
minimized this problem noticeably. If scanning is a
contributing factor, is it possible to make the server
not scan if a player is playing?
