upgrading to Rhythmbox 0.5.4 should fix this bug. here are some messages from

- Use Ogg Vorbis for internet radio if compiled without MP3 support [Colin Walters]
- Hardcode use of mad/vorbisfile/flacdec, until spider works [Colin Walters]

- More default internet radio stations [Nadav Rotem]

please upgrade to Rhythmbox 0.5.4

Yeah, Colin and I spent time yesterday straightening this out.  I'll update as
soon as I can get it to build on x86_64.
