Rhythmbox import errors should be ignorable and/or whole list should be removable

Bug #509446 reported by turbooster

One Hundred Papercuts

Bug Description

Every time I open Rhythmbox there's a list of import errors, be it GStreamer errors or unknown MIME-types.
The only options in this section are 'remove from list' and 'send to trash'. Every item has to be chosen separately.
For 100 paper cuts there should be the option to 'remove all from list'.

On the long term there could be the possibility to ignore files completely. Those files would then be accessible via 'Options -> Ignore List'.

I know this is app-specific but Rhythmbox is the default music-player for Ubuntu so it should be handled like Nautilus since it will be used more often then Nautilus by some.

Thank you for bringing this bug to our attention. However, a paper cut should be a small usability issue , in the default Ubuntu 9.10 install , that affects many people and is quick and easy to fix. So this bug can't be addressed as part of the project.

this is a feature request so not a papercut

For further info about papercuts criteria , pls read > https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PaperCut

Don't worry though, This bug has been marked as "invalid" ONLY in the papercuts project.

The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME.
