[mythtv-users] Mythvideo takes long time to scan

I'm running a combined frontend/ backend mythbuntu 10.10 and upgraded to
mythtv 0.24 a couple of days ago.
Most of my multimedia library is on a QNAP NAS box over a cabled gigabit
network. Network performance is great, with speedy file transfers
between the NAS device and the mythbuntu box.
Now everytime I access mythvideo ("Media Library" > "Watch Videos")
from the frontend I am looking at a thirty to forty minute delay whilst
it does a scan. The delay is on the NAS box (about five to seven
minutes) and the rest is taken up by "updating" the database.
This did not happen under 0.23.1, where it took a couple of minutes on
the same hardware.
Any help on what I might do to improve matters? Can the scan be switched
off so it only occurs on demand, as it used to be in earlier versions of
