Collections on External HDD

Hey people,

For a while there has been some functionality missing from Amarok 2 which has 
burnt me.

Basically, I have all my music on an external hard drive. While this is 
normally connected to my laptop, it is sometimes not mounted. The issue is 
that every time I start Amarok and then mount my hard drive a full collection 
rescan takes place. This means of course, that all my modifications to my 
collection are lost etc... If I start Amarok without mounting my hard drive, 
then close Amarok, mount my hard drive and restart Amarok the same thing 

I assume this is to do with the incomplete implementation of non-local 
collections? I was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of 
where this should be fixed / implemented so that I might have a go.

Thank you to all of you for your work on Amarok.
Nick Ogden
