With the same configuration, I don't get quite that far: rhythmbox segfaults about a second after displaying its main window.
rhythmbox[2043]: segfault at 0 ip 00007f5d0ca21e4c sp 00007f5d0f1ef300 error 6 in libnss_wins.so.2[7f5d0c9c9000+283000]

It works fine when I move wins around in /etc/nsswitch.conf so that it's after dns, though. Good enough workaround for me.

The rest of the system is doing fine with both variants, however - the crash seems to be confined to rhythmbox.
