Bug Description

This is on Natty running from the PPA

1. Run pithos from the terminal
2. When the first song starts, skip to the next song

The terminal reports the following error info:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/pithos", line 247, in bgcolor_data_func
    cell.set_property("cell-background", bgcolor)
TypeError: could not convert argument to correct param type

And the GUI marks the song with a gstreamer error, though there was not one.

The problem seems to be be that the code is setting the background-color of the cell with gtk,gdk.Color object. Changing line 247 of bin/pithos to the following seems to fix it:
            cell.set_property("cell-background-gdk", bgcolor)

Let me know if you would prefer a merge proposal or a patch instead, but for a 4 character change, this seemed easier for you.

This bug exists in natty universe as well, I'll probably distro patch it.

Fixed in 0.3.7-2 in Debian. It'll be safe to sync the next version of the package to Ubuntu.
