banshee (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
 - buy a cd that is not registered with music brainz but contains cd text and insert into your pc
 - start banshee: it reports that no metadata for this cd could be received and displays only generic track/author names
 - stop banshee and start rhythmbox
 - rhythmbox informs that this cd is not on musicbrainz, shows titel and disc name and offers to upload the disc data
 - click in rhythmbox to upload music brainz, complete musicbrainz procession (until data is confirmed)
 - restart banshee, close rhythmbox
 - banshee now shows metadata
 - use banshee settings to disable "all actions requiring internet activity"
 - restart banshee, still shows metadata
 - drop network connection using network manager
 - restart banshee, now it does not find any metadata anymore
 - reconnect network
 - banshee now finds metadata

Expected results:
 - with banshee having internet-related actions disabled, it should not query musicbrainz
 - at least with cd-text being present, musicbrainz queries should not be default at all

 - Disabling all internet activity protects privacy if implemented properly.
