Bug Description

I'm seeing quite bizarre behavior while taking pictures with the camera and watching dbus.log (Aquaris E5, OTA-10).

I have about 2000 songs without embedded artwork on the phone. The music app is sitting on the Artist tab, showing a bunch of images, as well as default artwork for some albums for which 7digital doesn't have artist art. The thumbnail cache is hot for the artists that are showing.

Now I change to the camera app and take a picture. About two seconds after I press the shutter button, I see the trace below in dbus.log. Every time I take a picture, something sends 59 (!) requests for album and artist art. Presumably, adding the picture, which wakes up mediascanner, causes the model for the music app to be updated, which then redraws everything even though it doesn't have a display surface.

It would be great to avoid this. Is there a way to not update the music app model when a picture is added?

Note that, to see hits as well as misses and errors, you need to run
