[mythtv-users] upnpmedia polling

I tried upgrading my mythtv to the trunk version (from 0.20 fixes) and have 
noticed a few days later that my media drive that mythvideo is pointed at 
keeps spinning up every 1/2 hour (it's normally spun down except when playing 
movies or backing up). That's 48 spin-ups per day up from 2 or 3.

After following the breadcrumbs I found that a new upnpmedia class is 
regularly doing something called BuildMediaMap using a hard-coded interval of 
1800 seconds.

Is this really necessary? What are the consequences of disabling this on my 
local copy until a more sleep-friendly solution arises?
