Description of problem:
Amarok tries to send a crash report when it crashes at startup.
This happens when there are radio streams in the playlist (possibly when the playlist consists entirely of radio streams, I'm not sure).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Empty the playlist and add some radio streams from the predefined lists.
Amarok tries to file a bug report (creates an email message)
It should be sitting in the tray.

Exercpt from the email amarok sent
When this happens, amarok tries to send a bug report every time you start it.
One remedy I found is to run it from konsole with an audio file.
$ amarok /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Beep_Door.wav
This clears the playlist and it starts up OK.
Hmm ... I wonder if this is actually the root cause of bug 395621, which I'm
still seeing periodically and have mostly been working around. Must check if it
happens only with radio streams in the playlist; that would explain the "only
sometimes" behaviour I experience.
Please report this to amarok's upstream developers @ bugs.kde.org so that they
can be made aware of the issue.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
