totem player complains that resource is busy

when I want to run totem player, it says the resource is busy and exits
Try switching your video output using gstreamer-properties (Can also be found
under prefrences|more prefrences as Multimedia Selector or something to that
I am having the same problem with totem-1.3.1-1 from rawhide.
When I run totem I get
The video output is in use by another application. Please close other video
applications, or select another video output in the Multimedia Systems Selector.
I launch the Multimedia Systems Selector and it is set to use Xwindows (No XV)
for the default video output plugin.
Try changing it to autodetect which should be the default. Failing that try
each of the options to see if one works.
Autodetect, Xwindows (No XV), Xwindows (X11,XShm,XV) all give the same error.
If I do a test (test button in Multimedia Systems Selector) on autodetect and
Xwindows (No XV) I get the test pattern. If I do a test on Xwindows
(X11,XShm,XV) I get the error: Failed to construct test pipeline for 'XWindows
fixed for me in totem-1.3.90-1.
Can the original bug reporter still reproduce this, with totem at least 1.3.90?
The switch to gstreamer-0.10 should definitely take care of this, especially
with the default video output set to "Autodetect" (autovideosink).
