I just saw interesting behavior here. My file server is turned off at
the moment and I can see the list of videos in MythVideo's gallery.

When I turn on the option to show me also files which are not scanned,
MythVideo does not show anything any more, not even videos which are
in the database. It cannot show anything new in this directory because
it is not mounted, but I expected to be able to see at least videos
which are already scanned which is usual behavior.

I would not consider this as a bug, although I see no reason for
showing scanned videos when this option is turned off and not showing
anything at all when is turned on.
