"Gstreamer element input-selector" plugin confusion

Screenshot showing "kerneloops needs plugin"
Description of problem:
Each time I start rhythmbox and start playing a clip, I get a popup error indicating a missing plugin:
"XXXX requires an addition plugin", where XXXX is a "random" process (e.g., kerneloops, pidgin, ...)
No music.... When I clear the error by selecting "close", the clip immediately pauses. Pressing "play" a second time starts the music.
This only occurs on the first "play" of a session. Restarting rhythmbox repeats this.
I attach 2 different screenshots showing the error popup.
When this happens
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

What's the output of "ps aux" when this happens?
I'd like to see what arguments are passed to the helper.
I get this too on F11, always happens after rb start the first time I hit play. This is how the helper is called in that case:
/usr/libexec/gst-install-plugins-helper --transient-for=60817442 gstreamer|0.10|rhythmbox|GStreamer element input-selector|element-input-selector
Hmm, actually my case is a bit different, it's always saying "<song name> requires additional plugin" and the plugin is always gstreamer input selector. Searching for it doesn't succeed but it does play the song ok.
$ gst-inspect input-selector
Long name: Input selector
Description: N-to-1 input stream selectoring
Binary package: gst-plugins-bad rpmfusion rpm
Origin URL: http://rpmfusion.org/
Rhythmbox really shouldn't require a plugin from gst-plugins-bad. I'll try to fix this.
Tom, could you clone the bug against gnome-packagekit? The "kerneloops needs this" is bogus, and a bug in GPK.
