amarok goes into a busy loop and stops responding

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. load playlist
2. start playing
After a while amarok goes into a busy loop and stops responding.
The error appears to be in gstreamer since the amarok sends out a bunch of
GStreamer errors on the commandline
Is it a playlist of local tracks, or is it streaming ?
Could you try with the Helix engine ?
The playlist is local tracks. The helix engine doesn't support mp3 tracks so it
wouldn't be applicable but I've recreated the amarok rpm with support for the
xine engine and it has worked without problems when I installed and used that.
I've previously attached gdb to a busy process and got a backtrace but didn't
record it. I'll try to reinstall the original rpm and try that again. This is
on a dual processor machine so I might be hitting a race condition since it
happens at random times.
OK, the gstreamer engine is not quite finished in Amarok, which is why they
removed it from the final 1.4 tarball. If the xine engine works for you, then fine.
