Rhythmbox Magnatune fails to load catalog in 10.04

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

I am testing 10.04 beta1 live CD and rhythmbox fails to load magnatune catalog, just sits there and telling "Loading magnatune catalog", it does not freezes, but the catalog never comes.
I saw on other bugs like this that a "mkdir ~/.cache/rhythmbox/magnatune" resolved the issue, well in this case it did not change anything. Still fails to load the catalog.
I even tried using opendns, thought it could be something wrong with isp, but magnatune page is available in firefox, Also at the same time Ubuntu One music store does not have any problems in loading catalog/playing songs.

This bug is important as 10.04 ships with ubuntu one store and it will draw more attention to rhythmbox stores, and having a buggy magnatune plugin along with ubuntu's one working is just not fair!
What is this, a marketing decison? "We make sure Ubuntu one works while the others dont't and so we sell more!?"

Can someone confirm this bug in 10.04?

Just to add to this bug, it was still a bug for me in 0.12.8 even after the fix was release, using the debug I found out the following problem

(08:59:48) [0x828040] [UpdateCheck.check_for_update] /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/rb/Loader.py:350: error checking for update: Error stating file '/home/<user>/.cache/rhythmbox/magnatune/song_info.xml': No such file or directory

after doing a touch to the file stated above song_info.xml the catalog loaded without a problem. I don't have an account on gnome so if someone could pass on the info to them it would be very much appreciated. thanks.

Could we perhaps change this bug back to confirmed? Or should we open another bug?
