Bug#684514: rhythmbox: When playing off Last.fm, two tracks are played and rhythmbox stops and becomes crash-prone

Package: rhythmbox
Version: 2.97-2.1
Severity: normal

Since a couple of days ago (I cannot assure whether this happened
starting with 2.97-2 or -2.1 but it would be consistent), when I
request any of the Last.fm stations to be played, it starts
correctly. After playing the first song, the second one is played, but
the "play" button appears as if it were not playing.

After playing the second song (if I don't skip any using the "Next"
button), rhythmbox stops. Hitting "Play" again removes the topmost
song from the playlist (that is, the one I just heard) - And if I
request it to play again (hitting "play" or double-clicking on any of
the displayed songs) I get a dialog saying "Coldn't start playback:
Nothing to play". Rhythmbox stays idle then.

The station I just listened to in Last.fm now will only produce this
dialog. If I select any other station, rhythmbox unceremoniously
closes. Note that, at this stage, if I select any local track/playlist
instead, it will continue working correctly.
