mixxx does not stop scanner on exit

Bug Description

mixxx keeps on scanning the library (in a separate thread?) after the main window is closed.

This should be easy to reproduce:
-start mixxx without a ".mixxx" directory and click "choose"
-close mixxx before the scanner has finished its work and it will continue until its done.

happens on mixxx trunk (revision 2260)

I should note that /home/yves/tmp/mixxx/mixxx/res/skins is a symlink to /usr/local/share/... which itself links back - it is a infinite symlink loop (I fixed that mistake right now).

I think that is why I noticed that bug in the first place.

Not sure if we should check for cycles in the directory structure -- Albert?

Changed in mixxx:
milestone: none → 1.8.0

I believe it's intended that the library scanner keeps scanning after the main window is closed. If you click cancel, it should quit Mixxx after that. Closing as Won't Fix. Albert, comments?

Changed in mixxx:
status: New → Won't Fix
