Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

instead of song text, the user is presented with an html page that starts like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
 <title>MediaWiki API</title>
<span style="color:blue;">&lt;?xml version=&quot;1.0&quot;?&gt;</span>
<span style="color:blue;">&lt;api&gt;</span>
  <span style="color:blue;">&lt;error code=&quot;help&quot; info=&quot;&quot; xml:space=&quot;preserve&quot;&gt;</span>

  <b>** **</b>
  <b>** This is an auto-generated MediaWiki API documentation page **</b>
  <b>** **</b>
  <b>** Documentation and Examples: **</b>
  ** <a href=""></a> **
  <b>** **</b>

  Status: All features shown on this page should be working, but the API
                   is still in active development, and may change at any time.
                   Make sure to monitor our mailing list for any updates.

I suspect the MediaWiki API has changed.

it seems that we already have that change in the karmic package, but my gconf database still had a reference to So this bug is already fixed for new installs, but broken for upgrades

the correct solution would be to make rhythmbox cope with the new lyricwiki API or at least remove it from the gconf settings.

changing user configuration on upgrade is something we don't have good architecture for since the users could be unhappy to have the upgrade touch custom option changes, we might be able to tweak rhythmbox code in such cases though
