Jajuk constantly reading from hard drive

Jajuk is constantly reading from my hard drive
Of course, this normally is fine and expected. The issue is that the reads are so large and so frequent and so unnecessary that it is (unfortunately) abusing the hard drive bandwidth. I'm clocking about 4-10MB (bytes) per second all the time. It's like it's trying to read my entire mp3 collection into memory. I know Jajuk is trying to read tag information since I've seen the ~/.jajuk/jajuk.log file being appended to as I was looking at it; but Jajuk already has all the tag information in the database.
It's going through about 1GB every 2min. At this rate, my hard drive will die much more quickly.
All reading stops when I kill Jajuk, and starts again very soon after I restart it (<1min).
Please note that I recently upgraded to RC4; though it bears mentioning that I think previous versions of Jajuk had this issue as well, but I did not notice it.
By comparison, a "find ." will dump my all the paths in the collection within 20sec. And tags only need to be read from new (or possibly changed) files.
