My Question or Issue
Ever since the most recent update, the desktop Spotify Client has been accessing FLAC files (.flac) in my Downloads directory. Given that I haven't asked Spotify to monitor my Downloads directory and that the client keeps each of these files open in such a way that I can't delete them or the directories that contain them, this seems like a serious issue. This seems especially serious because Spotify doesn't support importing FLAC files into your local library  so why is it opening them at all?
MP3 files, which ARE supported, do not exhibit this behavior. New FLAC files created outside of the Downloads directory also do not exhibit this behavior. This strongly suggests that the new Spotify Client has been specifically coded to interact with FLAC files in the Downloads directory only.
How to reproduce :
0) Create FLAC file in Downloads directory
1) Start Spotify Client
2) Try to delete that file and explorer says "The action can't be completed because the file is open in Spotify." This happens immediately if one creates a new FLAC file, suggesting that the Spotify Client is "watching" the Downloads directory.
3) Close Spotify Client
4) Try to delete the file again and it works
Please fix this. Also, I would appreciate an explanation for why Spotify's Client is doing this obviously inappropriate access to files in the User's Downloads directory. This seems like a serious privacy concern and the community deserves an explanation.
