Last modified: 2013-07-31 19:10:03 EDT
Description of problem:
RhythmBox receives SIGSEGV after changing the "Browser views" at Preferences.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
After some random experiments with RB UI (selecting different playlists from
different sources, and some playback) this occurs after changing "Browser view".
I managed to reproduce it at least 3 times - first time without gdb, then got 2
Steps to Reproduce:
Last step that causes crash is selecting another Browser view in preferences. I
will do further investigation on exact steps that cause the crash.
See attached GDB backtrace.

Screenshot of started Rhythmbox
changed version from FC5 to devel as this bug is still present in FC6-devel.
I can't reproduce this crash on my FC6 system.
Uhm, i tried it again and it crashed again. The whole library is .ogg music.
Does the backtrace make any sense ??
I have found this bug present in Mayhem. Can any1 try to reproduce and comment ??
There are warnings before we get to the segfault:
(rhythmbox:4477): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT
Could you please run rhythmbox with "--g-fatal-warnings" and gather a new
with --g-fatal-warnings, it's output is:
GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
and a backtrace from bugbuddy in attachment

I can't reproduce this in FC6 either, so removing the FC6Update blocker.
Moving to RHEL5 where the problem might exist.
Please test with RHEL 5.3 when that's released.
Can't reproduce in 5.3 (rhythmbox-0.11.6-4.el5)
