I seem to recall getting a prompt of some sort, perhaps from apt-listbugs,
which alerted me to a database upgrade. I don't see it mentioned in the
changelog, and assumed that it was from the NEWS file, because of my own
settings with it.
However, you can see the same announcement about a database upgrade if you
look at the beta announcement for 2.6 beta 1 for amarok (
http://amarok.kde.org/en/releases/2.6/beta/1), where it says: "This release
includes a database update that can take up to a few minutes to complete. A
dialog will prevent use of Amarok while this critical change is applied."

As for reporting my bug directly, I can't say that I've really had much
success with that in the past in relation to other bugs, and have had more
luck with IRC (which, although they then got fixed, then got reverted back
to where they were before shortly afterwards, which kind of shook some of
my confidence in them a bit), as well as having been redirected on a few of
them as well, which still haven't been fixed, to report them to my distro
directly, because they then claimed that they didn't exist, even though I
could reproduce them on several different machines that I had or which I
had access to.
In any case, while getting this fixed upstream would be rather desirable
for me, all I'm concerned with at the moment is whether this is suitable
for release in Wheezy or not. Also, sorry for the short rant as well for
why I haven't bothered with forwarding this upstream yet.
