I've been tracking rhythmbox lately, will have a look in the morning.
Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2006-02-01 15:36:17 EST
Which version are you using?  I just did:

export MALLOC_PERTURB_="149"

using rhythmbox-0.9.2.cvs20060123-1 both my i386 laptop and my x86_64
workstation (64bit) and neither of them crashed...
Comment 3 Christopher Aillon 2006-02-01 16:13:07 EST
Also, I just built a newer CVS snapshot (0.9.2.cvs20060201) which had a 64bit
crash fix in the changelog since the last snapshot i pulled.  See if that fixes it.
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2006-02-01 16:43:36 EST
I was also running rhythmbox-0.9.2.cvs20060123-1
It crashed whilst it was scanning new oggs that I had added, so it may have only
trigger if you have awesome tunes.

I'll try out the new build when I get home.
Comment 5 Dave Jones 2006-02-01 16:47:07 EST
actually, it was my work machine that died. Just tested latest build, and it
seems to work.

Whee, I have noises again.
