I like to keep my disk thrashing at a minimal, so I uncheck "scan on startup only" while leaving "continuously monitor" checked.  This occurs when I turn on the external drive that houses my library, close the explorer popup while it's reading my drive (my drive becomes audibly silent) and then start MB3.

This behavior is not seen afterwards if I close MB3 (after it finishes scanning), restart it immediately afterwards and the external drive is still on.

when "continuously monitor" is checked, as intended scan on startup is still performed eg. the user may have added files to the scan folder while MB is not running
