I've tryed it and found that file which is copied by cp isn't reindexed 
by dvgrab, may i file a bug on dvgrab or is it possible to apply any 
workaround to nautilus in the future? I'm not sure if this behaviour is 
correct. I mean that nautilus may check that file was not modified last 
10 secs, it would solve this problem for all applications, not dependent 
on writing pattern.

Thanks for your quick answer.
