Yes.  As it will when doing EIT data collection--because every changed 
listing it inserts needs to be looked at anew for scheduling.

Nope.  You can find a non-EIT listings source (and not use EIT), or 
change EIT to use passive collection rather than active, or wait until 
EIT active collection is rewritten to use a more-sensible approach.
