Bug Description

* Exaile version and where you installed exaile from
- Exaile 3.3.0 from exaile-dev PPA for ubuntu (

 * A clear and detailed explanation of the actual behavior.

- I opened covermanager from edit -> covers and started search for covers. Little by little exaile took over all of my 4Gb RAM and 1Gb swap, until finally crashed.

* Noteworthy: I have lots of music files, about 50 000 with about 7000 albums. I only use local files as covers (mainly .jpg).
