Force exclusion of all subfolders when excluding a folder #248
In the folder selection dialog, it's possible to end up with confusing scan preferences when playing with folder states. When setting the state of a folder, it applies for all subfolder, except those with an explicitly specified state. This logic can lead to a user thinking that he excluded a whole folder when it's in fact not the case. Example:
Given the high likeliness that a user setting a root folder's state as "Excluded" means to exclude everything underneath, without exception, I think it's better to override all previous states for subfolders. The user can always re-specify a subfolder state afterwards.
