Description Jiri Prajzner 2017-12-01 08:45:26 UTC
Description of problem:
Rhythmbox tracks files that are not relevant to the media files it is able to play and marks them as "ignore".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.4.2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. grep location .local/share/rhythmbox/rhythmdb.xml | wc -l
2. grep ignore .local/share/rhythmbox/rhythmdb.xml | wc -l
3. 

Actual results:
grep location .local/share/rhythmbox/rhythmdb.xml | wc -l
780
grep ignore .local/share/rhythmbox/rhythmdb.xml | wc -l
629

Expected results:
Rhythmbox doesn't track non-media files

Additional info:
This is really unpleasant discovery and I think that the community should be aware of this and this has to be fixed.
