I am currently testing v6. At first, every time I played an album or viewed the album info, AP was automatically adding the artist to the Artist Database and downloading their biography and image from the Internet. It did this even though the Automatic Lookup options were unchecked (in the Artist Database), and Internet access was disabled in the preferences. After using AP for a while it somehow took off and scanned through all artists, including those on "various" albums. Is this a bug? I hope it isn't supposed to do this. I don't want it updating the database or downloading images unless I tell it to. Thanks.

Update: I found another post in the General section where someone asked basically the same question. The title is "automatic bio updates and black thumbnails". From Peter's answer, sounds like it probably is a bug. Hopefully it will get fixed soon.

The "bug" is that, there is still internet access from some places while internet access is disabled.

Don't forget that the Automatic Lookup options are disabled too, so it's like a double bug.
