Plug-in Scanner runs every few sessions and wastes lots of time

Every few times I load Studio One 4, I seem to get the Plug-in Scanner popping up for a full check on Start-up(ie, like it's running first time).

As I type this, it's fifteen minutes into a scan of the VST 2 folder, which the dialog claims has 6814 items in. There are only 178 plugins in the actual VST folder.

This seems to happen once every several times that I load Studio One. Often the Plug-in Scanner does a quick rescan; other times it goes in for the long haul – like this time.

Is this a known issue at all, or am I doing something unusual myself?

Check your preferences, Locations, VST.

It gives the locations to check on vst-plugs and you can set SO to check plug-ins on start or not.
