Calibre 2.51.0 triggers MTP failure with particular device

On two different computers running stock Ubuntu 15.10, I get identical behavior.

When Calibre is NOT running, plugging in my iRulu X1s tablet running Android 5.1.1 ("Lollipop") works correctly, accessing via MTP and able to see folders and files on both internal and external (SD) storage.

When Calibre 2.51.0 is running, the file manager window showing the contents of the table goes empty if it was open, and new windows open rapidly and briefly show icons for internal and external storage before going empty. A new window opens every second or so until either the device is unplugged or Calibre is shut down.

Here is the debug output produced by Calibre (device serial number redacted):

On linux (and OS X), you cannot have multiple application trying to connect to a MTP device. Only one application can be connected at a time. So turn off the auto connect in your OS/file manager and you will be fine.

I've always accessed Android devices from Calibre in USB mass storage mode, and MTP is something with which I have little experience.

It's straightforward to disable auto-mounting in Ubuntu using the documented facility in dconf-editor, but now I cannot get Calibre to see the device under "Connect/Share" and "Connect for folder."

I could likely rig up something in Linux using jmtpfs or a comparable utility, which would look the same as old-style USB mass storage, but I suspect this is not what Calibre expects?

I don't think Auto mount was what he meant.

You may have an APP that runs when a device is mounted. You need to set that to do Nothing when the device connects

Two years later but just wanted to say thanks to Kovid for taking the time to answer. Drove myself nuts trying to get Calibre to recognize my Kindle, uninstalling and reinstalling various libraries. Turns out the solution was just to unmount the Kindle and restart calibre, derp.

Thank you!!
