Package: rhythmbox
Version: 3.4.1-2+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

rhythmbox fails to open a database when it's owned by another user but it has
r/w permissions on it by group or other means


# chmod 664 $YOURUSERHOME/.local/share/rhythmbox/*
# chown -R $OTHERUSER:$YOURUSER $YOURUSERHOME/.local/share/rhythmbox
Open rhythmbox

Rhythmbox will show a blank database because he thinks that he cannot open
files owned by another user
