Description Stewart Adam 2006-04-02 21:03:46 EDT
Description of problem:
When adding songs, a segfault occurs:
-- My Terminal --
[user@DellLin ~]$ rhythmbox
(rhythmbox:5692): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: Unable to start mDNS browsing
[I add the folder, then]
Segmentation fault
-- End My Terminal --

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

How reproducible:
Sometimes... Sometimes it will add, other times add with an error about bad MIME
types on 3 files, others it will crash.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Rhythmbox
2. File > Import Folder, choose a folder
3. It crashes
Actual results:
Rhythmbox crashes, segfault

Expected results:
Add songs to library

Additional info:
The folder I'm adding contains only MP3's itself, although subfolders contain
.ram (realplayer) files.

There's a good chance this is fixed upstream.  Rhythmbox added better support to
stop rhythmbox crashing if gstreamer choked on particular files.  Bug #189189 is
an upgrade request.

Well, then the bug shouldn't be closed, (since it was opened as a FC-5 bug)
unless it has gone away in the latest FC-5 update, which was
