New tracks not recognised by Rhythmbox when running

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

When adding new tracks to the default folder for my music items, and Rhythmbox is already running, it does not find the new tracks. In Preferences / Music, the box for Watch my library for new files is ticked. If I select menu Music / Scan removable media, it still does not find the new files.
There should be an option to force Rhythmbox to scan the hard disk as well as removable media for new files, to scan its own music library location.
Currently the only way to get it to recognise new music is to close and reopen Rhythmbox.

I am using Ubuntu 9.04, AMD64. Rhythmbox 0.12.0

I tested this and it works for me without any issues in Lucid updated as of 2010-04/06.

I was able to start Rhythmbox, then copy a new song into my library folder and then do a search for it in Rhythbox. It did take about 5 seconds for the song to appear but it was seen by Rhythmbox.
