Description Diederik van der Boor 2009-12-30 00:02:25 UTC
Version:           2.2.1 (using 4.3.4 (KDE 4.3.4) "release 2", KDE:43 / openSUSE_11.2)
Compiler:          gcc
OS:                Linux (i686) release

I've added a mounted network location as my collection, and it turns out Amarok doesn't handle this really well. When the share is not yet mounted, Amarok will erase all songs from the database again.

Would it be possible to either detect this, or prevent a mounted network share to be used as collection (with a suggestion to use ampache / mt-daapd)
