This is really weird, we do almost the same, the only change is that
we now kill the scanning process if it take too long to reply (ie:

Since 30 albums is too much to request for testing, you'll have to try
some commands there to see if it helps:

1 - Increase time to kill scanner:
     cnl-set-prefs canolad slave_timeout 10000
2 - Decrease number of files processed in each transaction:
     cnl-set-prefs canolad commit_interval 1
3 - shutdown canolad and start it with log:
      canolad stop
      canolad start -vv --logfile=/home/user/canolad.log

Report if it helped and the 2 generated files (yes, you need the 2>
redirection too).
