Lightroom wants to Import images???

I recently installed/upgraded to Lightroom CC 2015.5 under Windows 8.1. The last couple of times I have been reviewing images in the Library module, Lightroom suddenly goes to a blank screen and wants to import images. To my knowledge, I am not doing anything that would cause this to happen, so I would like to know what is going on. Is this a bug in the new version?

No, AFAIK there is no such bug. It looks like that Lightroom is seeing one of your peripherals as a potential source. A (wirelessly) connected phone perhaps? You could turn off the option to show the import dialog when a camera is connected. All it takes to get the import dialog is one click on a button, so this option is not that useful anyway.

Johan, I really didn't think it was a bug, but it appears strange to me that this behaviour only started after I updated to LR CC 2015.5. I don't ever connect a camera to Lightroom, so I doubt that is causing the "problem". I also don't see how a wirelessly connected phone could create a problem as the "nearest" wireless phone is in the next room in a jacket pocket and is turned off.

I guess I will have to pay a bit more attention to what is happening, but right now, it appears to happen "out of the blue" so to speak with no obvious reason (to me) for it to occur.
