Lightroom mobile (Android): Gets confused with both microSD and an external SD cards

I got a Samsung Galaxy Note9 specifically for LrCC and microSD local storage.  Connecting a USB-C/SD card adapter for importing works, and the My Files app sees both the microSD and the external SD card. But Lr stops import at once (I have my SD cards set to read-only) -- turns out it replaces the microSD in preferences with the new external SD the moment you connect the adapter. It gets confused to the point it wants to resync, so you have to disconnect the adapter. This is even despite the fact the the sources in the import dialogue show both the microSD and the external SD.

The solution had been copying from the external D to the internal device memory (512GB) first, then importing from there.  Is there a way to keep Lr focused on microSD?
