I just noticed that when it had scanned successfully for a few minutes
after my recent reboot & login, and then after it had appeared to scan
more a few times after that recent login, that it is scanning the
folders that it had scanned already. So, I just excluded those
just to see what happens...
OK. Now this is getting silly. A few Minutes after my initial success
this morning with Nepomuk, I added a new directory of music to what Nepomuk
is scanning. It successfully began scanning that directory.
Unfortunately, Nepomuk must have started over Completely from the
beginning, because the files that Had been successfully scanned a mere few
minutes ago, now the metadata is gone/not viewable in dolphin.
So, for the benefit of anyone else that may having similar Nepomuk
instability, or may have it in the future, I eagerly await your input on
this, so that the fix for this particular Nepomuk madness will be publicly
