kscd crashes if no cddb record is found for a CD

Description of problem:
kscd crashes every time an audio CD is put in the player if it doesn't find a cddb record for the CD. If remote cddb search is not configured, it will play the same CD without problem. However, it will not save manually entered cddb data into the local cddb database.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This same bug shows up in RHEL3.
In order to play audio CDs that I made (from my own audio test
samples -- and this no CDDB record), I have to disable CDDB
Created attachment 99550 [details]
KDE backtrace for Xscd
This backtrace is when CDDB is enabled and a non-CDDB audio CD
is found by Kscd.
i don't see location where it allows you to disable!
i cannot reproduce it here. It would be nice if you could give me a
better testcase to reproduce this problem. Thanks
Start KsCD. Click on the "Hammer / Screwdriver" icon to
get the CD Player Configuration window. Click on the
freedb icon. Unclick the "Enable remote freedb" box.
Unfortunately the solution is to disable ALL CDDB looks
to avoid crashing on a CD simply because it is too new
to have an entry or too obscure.
I have the same problem. Here is the KDE Crash Handler trace (not

I noticed that this bug was still in the NEEDINFO state, so perhaps
this information will help move things along:
0) Verify that KsCD has the freedb service enabled and configured
0a) start KsCD without a CD
0b) click on the hammer and screwdriver icon to get the "CD Player
0c) click in the "freedb" icon on the left side
0d) enable [X] "Enable remote freedb"
0e) enable [X] "Enable auto save to local database"
0f) use a freedb base directory (/usr/share/apps/kscd/cddc/ or
0g) freedb server: "freedb.freedb.org http 80 /~cddb/cddb.cgi"
0h) click OK
1) Use the freedb on a well known music CD
1a) insert a well known music CD that you into the CDROM drive
1b) start playing the music CD
1c) click on the file drawer icon to start "CD Database Editor"
1d) click "Fetch Info" button
1e) click OK
2) Use freedb on an obscure music
1a) insert a music CD that has never been entered into the freedb
NOTE: Sometimes freedb will find the wrong information by
mistake. This will not trigger the bug. You need a
very new, or obscure, or some self made music CD
with track layout that does not match an existing
entry in the freedb. If freedb asks you to pick a CD
or gives you (perhaps the wrong) track info, then you
do not have a CD that is "unknown" to freedb.
2) watch KsCD crash
with your instructions, i have tried to reproduce this problem on
FC3 with KDE 3.3.1. It works fine for me. I did not see any crash.
My advice, please do update to FC3 ;-)
