Bug Description

GStreamer 0.10.36, both vanilla and shipped with ubuntu 12.04 has bug that can cause applications that do a lot of dynamic pipeline manipulation to crash.

Upstream bug is https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=679950

There is a solution for this bug available for a few months: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/gstreamer/commit/?h=0.10&id=cce71223d7b2f8227301f0724a18fc647f0cfd06

My sugesstion is to add this patch to ubuntu 12.04 LTS package as many applications rely on this functionality and GStreamer 0.10 will remain default for all 12.04 users for at least a few years.
