That would probably be useful for some users - your situation would
seem to be a prime example of the problem.

As I say, it doesn't affect me, but is this written up anywhere in
the wiki for those it does affect ?
I have to admit that I'm not aware of the differences in data filled

put the same info in the database as a full scan - but only that
which was found by scanning that frequency.
