Bug Description

Binary package hint: banshee-community-extensions

I've started to use the U1MS through the Banshee community extensions plugin - lovely service. However, I don't keep my music in ~/.ubuntuone/Purchased from Ubuntu One/. I keep them on my external hard drive. The files download to this directory and then I move them to my external hard drive.

The problem is that when I move them away from the folder, U1MS redownloads the files since it has a history of what I have purchased. So I end up with two local duplicates of the songs.

I'm concerned that if I do this enough times, 7digital will think that I've tried to download more than the allowed number of downloads for these songs and when I genuinely do want to recover the songs it won't allow me.

I've tried the command

 u1sdtool --list-folders
Folder list:
  id=3ef9d284-0cea-4960-8d82-cf706719eb6a subscribed=True path= ~/.ubuntuone/Purchased from Ubuntu One

u1sdtool --delete-folder=3ef9d284-0cea-4960-8d82-cf706719eb6a

But the files and folders are recreated and resync'd once more.

Lucid Lynx AMD64
banshee-community-extensions: 1.6.0-1ubuntu5
banshee: 1.7.1+git20100616.r1.ca79130-0ubuntu1+lucid
banshee-extension-ubuntuonemusicstore: 1.6.0-1ubuntu5

Steps to reproduce:
1) Purchase songs from 7digital using U1MS in Banshee
2) Move downloaded song from download folder to another folder

Expected result:
Songs are not redownloaded to the local machine

Actual result:
Songs are redownloaded to the local machine and two local duplicates now exist on hard drive

I'm moving this to libubuntuone, as I'm pretty sure Banshee isn't to blame for this, the U1MS widget handles all the downloading functionality
