Bug Description

I've plugged in an external USB CD/DVD RW and inserted an audio CD.

Cross fading is switched on in RB and I have restarted it to make sure the setting is applied.

Click on the audio CD, highlight track 1 and press play and RB crashes.

Thanks Sebastien.

I know it is very late in the cycle, but could Rhythmbox be updated to 3.3.1?

Overview of changes in Rhythmbox 3.3.1

* Better handling of locked Android devices
* Simplified ReplayGain processing that might crash less
* Switched to webkit2 API, except for the context plugin which is disabled
* Notifications behave better when actions aren't available
