Turn auto update of DB off x86 2.309

I am running on a Fujitsu destop computer. Volumio on one (small) internal HD, my music on a (big) internal HD.
After the update to 2.309 it iimpossible to change things on the HD containg the music files without the auto
update function locking everything up. The update takes forvever, I do frequent updates to my library, removals, adds, reorganize.
I want to turn the autoupdate off and update manually when I am done with my alterations.

I tried to set autoupdate to “no” in mpd.conf and that seems to work.
Can this cause some bad things happening?

No… At this point we can restore the option to set auto update to no
