Every time I run shotwell 0.15 (Ubuntu 13.10), it starts scanning my entire hard drive (according to ~/.cache/shotwell/shotwell.log) and displays "Updating Library." Is there a way to prevent this full-drive scan at startup? All my photos are in one directory tree and there's no need to scan elsewhere.
I checked the shotwell manual but didn't find a solution.
I tried invoking shotwell with the --no-runtime-monitoring option, but this made no difference.
I deleted ~/.cache/shotwell and ~/.locale/share/shotwell and reran shotwell, but this made no difference.

This bug sounded relevant at first but seems to be about a different issue:
Thanks for any insights.
