Hi, I for one would be grateful if this bug was patched ASAP as it appears to
be responsible for the crippling of some cross platform music players
(Rhythmbox, Clementine) on various Linux distros.

I know that you have to have to develop the big picture stuff and have limited
time and resources but this is one of those Linux situations where the
application developer refers you to the distro package maintainer who then
refers you to the the root package maintainer, and by the time the end user
gets there they just give up on the package.

My case:

1. A number of Debian based distributions are affected.
2. A patch exists.
3. More than 1 popular music application is affected.
4. This is a single point from which a solution can be implemented.
5. This problem has existed for some time.
6. Many people would be happy.

I hope that I am posting in the right place and this is the bug that causes the
crashes. If not, my apologies. I will be happy to help if there is anything I
can do to help fix this bug.
