Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

I had just opened Rhythmbox, after having used Firefox to download a .flac file into my music folder, when Apport popped up and told me that Rhythmbox crashed. Rhythmbox does not apear to have actually crashed, as I was still able to play music with it.

In my case, the problem occurs when I try to edit mp3 tags, (is impossible) and apport advise the program has crashed

Is this still an issue with rhythmbox 0.12.8 ? If so, could somebody report a new bug so we can compare the backtraces? there's no new duplicate of this issue with latest rhythmbox. Thanks.
