This seems to happen only with rhythmbox, not with mplayer or totem
(although I don't use totem much, and mplayer mostly for video):
After playing 3 or 4 songs, at the beginning of a song rhythmbox will
refuse to play anything. When I press the play button, the play-pause
indication toggles, but the current song positions stays at the
beginning. Rhythmbox outputs:
(rhythmbox:26642): RhythmDB-CRITICAL **: rhythmdb_entry_get_string:
assertion `entry != NULL' failed
on the terminal.
To fix it, I have to kill esd, and restart it. Then I can press play
and everyone's happy. Until it happens again... This seems to be more
prevalent if I skip forward through a few songs.
I'm using the latest unstable everything (~x86). Maybe the "un" before
stable is a clue
However this behaviour has been going for a while.
Any hints? thanks,
