My 1.9.0 git version clone soundfiles like described but adds (1) for
the first round, then (2) for the next round and so on. In this case a
real file duplication appears.

Import from External Device Should Check for Duplicates

Status in Banshee Music Player: New
Status in “banshee” package in Ubuntu: Triaged

Bug description:
Binary package hint: banshee

I recently did the following:
1. planned a vacation
2. loaded my HTC Android device with music for the vacation
3. using a friend's computer, loaded more music on the device
4. came home
5. connected the device to my computer, and
6. right clicked the device in Banshee, and selected "Import to Library"

What I was trying to accomplish was to import the new music (from step 3) onto my computer. What happened instead was that Banshee began importing ALL of the music on the device to my computer. This was not pleasing, nor what I intended. Therefore, when importing, Banshee should check to see if the song already exists on the computer.
