Package: rhythmbox
Version: 3.1-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I recently used Ex Falso to add replay gain tags to my music collection which
is comprised of Flac and MP3 files. After enabling the replay gain plugin to
Rhythmbox it began to lock up. I tried launching the app from a terminal and
this is what was reported when it crashed:

(rhythmbox:10988): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: gst_segment_to_stream_time: assertion
'segment->format == format' failed
sys:1: Warning: g_str_has_prefix: assertion 'str != NULL' failed

At that point I had to do a forced quit to get running again. As a test I
disabled the replay gain plugin and tried playing the same files. As of this
writing Rhythmbox is running ok.

Debian Jessie Beta 2
Ex Falso version 3.2.2
Rhtythmbox version 3.1
libgstreamer1.0-0 version 1.4.4-2

Please let me know if I can be of assistance.

Your Friend,

Len Huppe
