# rhythmbox-0.8.4-1

When playing an internet radio station from my rhythmbox playlist,
occasionally the radio station drops off the map.  When I click play
for that station, rhythmbox GUI does not respond as it is probably
stuck on trying to connect to the radio station URL.  

Expected Result:
I would gather the correct solution would be to background the play
request somehow so that the GUI is still responsive.  That way if 10
seconds go past and I *assume* the radio station is down, I can just
click stop...or play on another station/file.

I completely agree, but it is a very difficult problem.  Basically
GStreamer needs to become asynchronous, and this involves redesigning
its architecture.

This bug is already filed upstream.
