Bug Description

With Ubuntu 18.04 and Rhythmbox 3.4.2 I have the following problem: Rhythmbox initially crashes when I try to play a song. When I open it again it plays the song as expected without crashing.

How to reproduce the bug:
1) Open rhythmbox.
2) Search for a song. Doublecklick it to play it.
--> Rhythmbox will crash. Open rhythmbox again, it works without crashing now.
3) Close rhythmbox with the Ctrl + Q command. Start over at 1), bug appears again.

The bug seems to be related to the alternative toolbar once again. When disabling the alternative toolbar, Rhythmbox works stable without those crashes.

Can confirm this bug. Works fine, when alternative toolbar is disabled (thanks for the hint!).

Crahes with:

(rhythmbox:9166): Gtk-WARNING **: 14:00:32.526: actionhelper: action app.play-repeat can't be activated due to parameter type mismatch (parameter type NULL, target type b)

(rhythmbox:9166): Gtk-CRITICAL **: 14:00:32.824: gtk_tree_view_update_button_position: assertion 'column_el != NULL' failed

ERROR: Caught a segmentation fault while loading plugin file:

Please either:
- remove it and restart.
- run with --gst-disable-segtrap --gst-disable-registry-fork and debug.
