Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

Rhythmbox fails to build with the following error:

"pause" is declared in <unistd.h> as such:
/* Suspend the process until a signal arrives.
   This always returns -1 and sets `errno' to EINTR.

   This function is a cancellation point and therefore not marked with
   __THROW. */
extern int pause (void);

renaming "pause" -> "rb_pasue" in rhythmbox remote/dbus/rb_client.c confirmed to work, builds and runs seemingly fine (after Bug #587534 is patched as well).
