    I install svn-1586 on Red Hat 9. Set rescan_interval = 1 and always_scan = 1 in config file. However, my playlist on iTune 7.1 will not update when I add or delete a song. The list will only update when I restart iTune. Even if I press “Start Scan” or “Start Full Scan” button on web gui, I get the same result. According to the log message, it seems that the scanning of database is OK. But for some reason, my iTune has the automatically updating issue. Is this a bug?

    You don’t need to close iTunes, its sufficient to disconnect from the server and reconnect again.
    The “bug” would be with Apple, since they cache the full server database when connecting.
    If you use a Soundbridge for example, updates imho are available immediately.

    My OS is windows XP. Does XP has the issue of database cache as well?

    No, XP has NO issues at all!
    Because, as I wrote, the issue is with iTunes, not Windows.
    Do you see a special Windows XP version of iTunes to download? No? 😉
