Thanks for the report. 

I can reproduce this here with the same backtrace under KDE. Could not see any relevant bug reports upstream.

Comment 2 Christian Krause 2010-12-30 21:43:39 UTC
So far I could not reproduce the problem on a 32bit system.

Just to narrow down the issue, please can you try the following:
- start banshee in a GNOME session
- disable the "Notification Area Icon" extension:
Edit -> Preferences -> Extensions: Utilities / Notification Area Icon
and let me know whether it helped?

Comment 3 Andy Wang 2010-12-31 04:54:51 UTC
Yup, disabling the Notification Area Icon worked.

Comment 4 Christian Krause 2011-01-02 01:23:50 UTC
I have tracked down the issue and I have reported my findings upstream:


I will provide a new package with this fix for F14 within the next days.
