With the last few SlimServer versions, i'm currently
using the 5/1 nightly (v5.1.6), I have noticed that
the server doesn't completely scan my music folder
when it is initially started. It's as if it's reading
a cache file. When I force a rescan, the entire folder
is read properly. I am using iTunes 4.5, but this was
also true of 4.2, and OSX 10.3.3.

Has anyone else experienced this behavior?

P.S. Keep up the great work guys. I for one, as do
many others, appreciate the pace at which the product
is constantly evolving.

all going well, it IS a cache file. It should reload everything, but its been
going through some constant changes of late. If you are keeping up with the
nightlies, you might have to click wipe cache once per update.

I run from cvs, and I've found it to be pretty good at keeping all the data on
restart, once a single complete wipe and restart has been done. It should
settle down soon and you shoudl no longer need wipe cache for anything.

Are there specific file that get missed every time?
