Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

After playing a few songs, Rhythmbox goes silent or freezes due to a Gstreamer error. I usually have to manually kill the application and restart it to listen to music again.

Please note: I used the "Report a problem" function in Rhythmbox but maybe this should be filed as as Gstreamer bug, I hope someone can shed some light on this.

Here's the output from Rhythmbox - I think the last two lines are the relevant ones.
