Thank you for taking the time to report this bug.
Is this reproducible? If so, what specific steps should we take to recreate this bug?

Happens for me every time I start rhythmbox. First time I managed to click on Ubuntu One Music Store and then it crashed, but on subsequent attempts to open it, it crashes anyway within a second of the GUI opening whether or not I click on anything.

It crash to me too. Test case:

- Open rhythmbox and select Ubuntu One Music Store and exit.
- Next time that init it crash.
- Second time load ok.

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at http://www.ubuntu.com/download to know how to install that version.Thanks in advance.

I've test in Ubuntu Natty and still it's present, but now, I'm thinking that maybe it's not the same original bug reporter bug.

When I close rhythmbox and open it again (1 second after), it crash: next open after crash run ok. (Don't worry if you select ubuntu one music or not).

I've tryed to obtain a backtrace, but running from a terminal not crash.
 I think that could be a problem with the time needed to shutting down the application. From terminal, I have to wait some time from I click close and I get the command line control.

it's probably not the same, could you please enable apport and report a new bug? it's better to have separate bugs for each crash, thanks in advance. Btw i'm closing this one for now.
