Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

I was just listening to music and I got notified about a crash by apport. I also had a pop-up in Rhythmbox saiying this :

"Error while saving song information
Unable to create tag-writing elements"

I had edit some tags of other files previously but at the moment of the crash I was only listening music.

I don't know if it's related in any way but the music share is accessed over SSHFS. Even after the apport notification about the crash, Rhythmbox continued to play without problem.

In my case I changed the tag of an mp3, which I have write access to on the filesystem. Then RB crashed and apport took me here.
