Rhythmbox doesn't work well when I move the time slider several times

Bug #291556 reported by Ricardo Pérez López on 2008-10-31
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
rhythmbox (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open Rhythmbox.
2. Play a song. The song starts to play.
3. Move the time slider for around the middle of the song.
4. Again, move the time slider to another point.

Expected behavior: Rhythmbox starts to play the song from the point lastly selected on the slider.

Actual behavior: The song continues to play without been affected by the slider movement. After several slider movements, Rhythmbox crashes.

Sometimes I need to do that several times in order to get the fail.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. However, your crash report is either missing or challenging to deal with as a '.crash' file. Please follow these instructions to have apport report a new bug about your crash that can be dealt with by the automatic retracer.

 If you are running the Ubuntu Stable Release you might need to enable apport in /etc/default/apport and restart.

 If you are using Ubuntu with the Gnome desktop environment - launch nautilus and navigate to your /var/crash directory and double click on the crash report you wish to submit.

 If you are using Kubuntu or Xubuntu you can file the crash using /usr/share/apport/apport-qt --crash-file=/var/crash/_my_crash_report.crash in a terminal - where _my_crash_report.crash is the crash you would like to report.
 I'm closing this bug report since the process outlined above will automatically open a new bug report which can then dealt with more efficiently. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

Thanks for your response, Sebastien. However, I'm unable to get Apport works. When Rhythmbox fails, its window get unresponsive (the window fades to grey, I'm using Compiz). I can only do one thing: to click on the Close window button, but when I do that, the window closes and nothing more happens.

could you use gdb to get a stacktrace as explained on http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProgramCrash?

do you use the crossfading option? does not using it workaround the issue?

the issue is similar to bug #270700

Absolutely yes, Sebastien. I'm using the crossfading option. When I disable it, I can't reproduce the problem.
