Hi

I have the following scanner issues:

i got to my computer after the regular daily scan and it ran out of memory and scanner.exe crashed. did not think much of it.

today i updated a few playlists and wanted to rescan playlists so ran with "rescan playlists only" (sb 6.5.1 and xp). i was watching thr scanner.exe process and it was using 80-99 resources and memory usage was constantly increasing. up to 400 megabyte when i stopped it.

ran a manual (dos command line) rescan using scanner pointing to my music with no problems, except the playlists didnt update.

ran a manual rescan with scanner pointing to "my music\my playlists\" and got the following. (only posting last lines of output).

any ideas?

ok played around some more. i think i found the cause of the problem.

i have most of my playlists under
"all users\my music\my playlists"

media player sometimes save a playlist under "me\my music\my playlists"

to make slimserver scan that folder i put a shortcut in "all users\my music\my playlists" to point to "me\my music\my playlists". i also put a shortcut back to "all users\my music\my playlists" in "me\my music\my playlists" (for me to easily switch between the two). i think this creates an infinite recursion in the program code eating up memory.

this was not problem before 6.5.1

i confirmed this by removing all playlists in both folders but leaving the shortcut. rescanned playlists only. the scanner still ran eating up memory but eating memory a lot slower.

when i removed the "return" shortcut it stopped quickly as it should given that there are no playlists to scan.

finally confirmed it by putting back my playlists (but still without the return shortcut). scanner now quickly scans.
