If the user has music files already on the device, the first time they open a Music share activity (attaching a music file to a message or email, creating a custom ringtone), the device will erroneously display "Add songs to get started. Load songs on to the memory card."  Often times this message is displayed for more than 5 seconds before the music tracks become available.

-This only occurs the first time a share activity is loaded if the Music app itself has not been opened first.
-In the 2.2 branch, this same screen is displayed, but a loading animation is also displayed at the top of the screen while the music app identifies local music files.

Prerequisites: User has Music files stored on the device

Repro Steps:
1) Update a Flame to 20150519010201
2) Open the messages app and compose a new message
3) Select the Attach (paperclip) button and choose Music.

"Load songs on to the memory card." is displayed for several seconds without a loading animation before the songs are available.

The user is given a proper loading screen with animation before the songs are available for selection.

This issue does NOT occur on Flame 2.2 builds.
The user is given the same empty memory card message, but is also presented with loading animations at the top of the screen indicating that the songs are being loaded.

I don't see a delay of "several seconds". It takes about a second, tops, before the music app starts showing actual music, at which point, it should be fairly clear what's happening. This is far and away better than it was in 2.2, where you were completely unable to back out of the activity once it started showing music; you had to wait until it was finished scanning.

While we could change the alert's text or something to make it clearer what's happening, I think this is a pretty low priority, given that it's only onscreen for a moment, and that the old UX was quite a bit worse.

I think this is actually a dupe of bug 963622, although in a slightly-different form.
