more testing on the folder name issue.  Noticing that in my Videos -> TV 
Shows directory I had another directory for each show, I duplicated that 
for test videos. Now I have a directory structure like: test 
videos/Various Videos.

So now Leanfront -> Videos show one folder for each TV show as it did 
before but now there is a Various Videos directory with all my test videos.

There is still a blank folder on the left side, but that only contains 
the videos from my remote/slave backend videos directory.

The file count is still off on Hogan's Heroes directory: 168 files 
Leanfront count is 336, which is double.  I know 168 is because all 
Hogan's Heroes fans know there where 168 episodes recorded back in the 
60's. Also Ubuntu's properties displays 168 for items in the folder.
