Scanner deadlocks on incorrectly identified files #476

A file named anything.log with the following content blocks our scanner. Typefind things this is audio/mpeg, mpegversion=(int)1, layer=(int)1, probability=40 which is clearly wrong. And since we wait for the first audio data to get to the sink before trying the next file we get stuck.

Fix for this could simply be a per file timeout. Additionally we could consider a white and/or blacklist for extension to filter out files that are "obviously" wrong.

Within next_uri we need:

  • A call to gobject.timeout_add(...) which registers a callback to process_timeout, this should be done as we start processing a new track, so in the end of the function.
  • Each time next_uri gets called, the first thing it needs to do is to de-register the previous timeout (if there is one) using gobject.source_remove(...)
  • process_timeout should be similar to process_error and should just reuse the same error callback for simplicity. Feel free to simplify the error callback signature to a single message argument as part of this. The timeout callback also needs to set the stored id that we would use to remove the source back to none so that next_uri doesn't try to remove a timeout that has been called.

As for the timeout size, it should probably just be a config variable scan_timeout or something like that.
