Bug#774269: gnome-media: gstreamer-properties fails to starts; claims missing UI file

Package: gnome-media
Version: 3.4.0-2
Followup-For: Bug #774269

The problem is due to invalid "has_separator" properties on GtkDialogs in the
ui file, rather than missing UI file.

Upstream is supposedly uninterested in this part of gnome-media, but that's no
reason not to forward the bug, though.

I'm not aware of any other way to choose the default outputs/inputs - other
than editing the configuration manually with gconf-editor or similar, which is
cumbersome and requires undocumented knowledge.  Therefore, I'm providing an
(entirely trivial) patch for Debian.

With the patch applied, gstreamer-properties works as far as I'm able to test
(sound output selection/test, video output selection/test).
