After consultating with the #gstreamer irc channel on freenode found a
solution/workaround to this, and the related rhythmbox bug.
- rhythmbox uses gstreamer-0.10 but gstreamer-properties changes the
settings for gstreamer-0.8
- so gstreamer-0.10 settings have to be set using gconf-editor
- set the setting "/system/gstreamer/0.10/default/audiosink" in gconf to
"alsasink  buffer-time=-1" which will skip trying to set the buffer at
all, and gst-launch-0.10 and hence rhythmbox will work.
