Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-10-08 07:56:38 EDT
Description of problem:

When you stop/restart the sound server during rhythmbox playback, rhythmbox
consumes excessive amount of memory and loads CPU heavily.

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


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select ESD output in system-config-sound
2. Run rhythmbox and start playback
3. # pkill esd; pkill pulseaudio
Additional info:

I haven't reasearched whether it is rhythmbox who is to blame for this or some
underlying library. However, this has to be dealt with as pulseaudio in F8 is
pretty sucky and crashes often :}
