Looks like DesktopAppInfo.get_icon() is returning NULL when called by MediaPlayer's "icon" property getter, and we're passing that NULL into g_icon_serialize().

  * VolumeControl: don't pass vala closures into libpulse Libpulse's
    vala bindings don't specify that callbacks passed into some of its
    functions (e.g., get_server_info) can be called after the function
    returns. Vala thus frees closure data after these functions return.
    This can't easily be fixed in the bindings, because libpulse doesn't
    provide variants of these functions with destroy_notifies. This
    patch works around this problem by only passing non-closure
    functions into libpulse. (LP: #1244386)
