Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 355951
Rhythmbox takes a long time to display track properties box
Last modified: 2008-02-11 14:25:00 EST
Description of problem:
When the track properties box is first used on the currently playing track in
Rhythmbox, the UI hangs. Sometimes this is just until the end of the song.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Rhythmbox.
2. Begin playing an album.
3. Right-click on the track currently playing and choose properties.
4. Wait and see if the Properties box is displayed.
UI hangs. Music keeps on playing, sometimes going on to the next track and the
Properties box shows immediately.
Please gather a backtrace of the hang (using the info at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/StackTraces), and let me know the output of:
rpm -qa "gstreamer-*", and which types of files are involved (ie. just MP3s,
happens with Oggs, etc.)
Testing with Fedora 8 would also help.
Happens with both MP3 and Vorbis files.
rpm -qa "gstreamer*":
Running rhythmbox -d, it doesn't appear to be a complete hang. I've attached a
debug output, hope this helps.

Output of rhythmbox -d.
