I’m not sure. Maybe firefly has strange behavior when scanning a broken symlink. Maybe you missed a symlink because you grepped on /home/alex? (unless that was just for the single relevant result). I just haven’t seen anybody saying firefly scans in the wrong dir..
Well, I grep-ed on “/home/alex” because I noticed a disturbing number of lines in the log file relating to scans in /home/alex.
Other than that, I couldn’t have missed a symlink to anything containing “/home/alex” using grep and yes that broken symlink was indeed the only thing (it pointed to a long-discarded partition which had a then-home-directory mounted).
For the sake of it, I removed the broken symlink. Now there’s no such thing.
So it shouldn’t scan /home/alex.
Well… did the same thing: emptied log, deleted database, started mt-daapd.
It still scans /home/alex. :-/
