#6431 closed patch (fixed)

mythweb's video scan picks up AppleShare droppings and adds them to the database

The Scan Videos function in MythWeb picks up various droppings from having the videos storage shared via AppleShare?/netatalk. Most noticeable is .AppleDouble? folders, which contain lots of normal-looking filenames that are really just Apple-specific metadata for the files of the same name in the parent folder.

Comparing to the code in MythVideo?, it appears that MythVideo? excludes any files or directories that start with a dot, which is why running the same scan with MythVideo? doesn't pick them up.

I'm attaching a patch that changes the behavior with regards to dotfiles to match that of MythVideo?.

Any chance of getting this backported to .21-fixes? It applies cleanly, and seems like a usability thing... (my personal reason is I'm having to re-patch this locally every time I pick up a new build from the repo)
