Thanks - I'll see if I can find it!

I have noticed that even when the scan seems to be complete - the server is
still sitting there taking 30% or so of the processor time - which is not
right!

It does need to scan fully so that it can write the info to slimserver.db.
This
file is still loaded each time you start the server, so you will still see
the
count increase when you start up. All this information has to be loaded
when
slimserver runs, as nothing of a program is stored in ram when its execution
is
stopped.

--d_info will report details about the dbCache, but this info comes up right
after execution, so you will need to find slim.exe to do this.
