Package: rhythmbox
Version: 3.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
        Imported a big collection of my music.
        Downloading podcasts in the background.
        Occasionally rhythmbox does not recognise some files and flags them
with a minus (-).
        Guess that means they are not readable or "defect" which they are not.
Tested with foobar on win/linux
        After long long playback rhythmbox seems to flag many files like that
and/or just crashes.
        Also if I excessively play different files after another it can be
        I lose podcasts (the files) randomly with these crashes and some of my
playlist that I did not save             earlier were lost, too
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
        Waiting til gnome prompts that it doesn't respond and then force kill
it - restarting rhythmbox
   * What was the outcome of this action?
        After a restart it just worked fine but this gig repeats itself.
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
        That it would stop and not be permanent.

Regards and happy new year,
