i have it since the upgrade from 0.9.6 to 0.9.8 (the versions should 
have been in the original report?)

hm, i see nothing out of the ordinary. problem is, that the "exit" of 
rhythmbox starts a new instance (without -d). but i tried a few things.

1. mv /usr/bin/rhythmbox /usr/bin/rhythmbox.orig
    and execute "rhythmbox.orig"
results in rhythmbox exiting normally without restart

2. write a shell-script named "rhythmbox" that does execute
    "rhythmbox.orig -d" and pipes the output into a file
but that results again in rhythmbox exiting normally without restart 
(and nothing interesting in the log again).

after that i renamed the original rhythmbox to it's usual name the 
restarting occurs again. odd...
