Description of problem:
The same problem existed in Fedora Core 1 too. I have
rhythmbox-0.8.3-3 and gstreamer-0.8.1-1, along with
gstreamer-plugins-0.8.1-1, gstreamer-plugins-mp3-0.8.1-0.lvn.1.2 (from
livna.org) and libmad-0.15.1-0.lvn.1.b.2 (also from livna.org). When
listening to a remote stream (like any station from shoutcast.com) in
rhythmbox, hitting the stop button hangs rhythmbox. It me be forced to
exit (kill -9, hitting the window managers close button a bunch of
times, using the system monitor). Switching streams works just fine,
it's just hitting stop that hangs it. I realise MP3 is not supported
by RedHat, point me to a stream for a supported type and I will try to
reproduce it with that.

I have an RHEL WS 2.1 box with gstreamer and rhythmbox installed using
the original source (via garnome) and I don't think the problem exists

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Play a radio station in rhythmbox
2. Hit the stop button

Actual Results:  rhytmbox hangs and must be forcibly killed

Expected Results:  the stream should stop playing

I'm pretty sure this is because Rhythmbox is trying to shut down the
TCP connection when you click stop, but the other side isn't responding.
This is thus a symptom of the larger issue of needing to make internet
radio asynchronous, already reported upstream:
