Thanks for taking the time to report this bug. Unfortunately, we are
not able to fix and find the bug because your description of the bug
didn't have enough information in it. You may find it helpful to read
"How to report bugs effectively",
We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description
of the problem.

Debugging procedures for certain types of problems can be found at

You probably want to describe what version of Ubuntu you use and get a backtrace of the crash (http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProgramCrash)

Sorry for my bad bug report. Hope this one is better:

Distro: Ubuntu Edgy
Arch.: AMD 2500+ (x86)

I right click a song in the playlist and select "Add to play queue". Then I go to the play queue and press "Create audio CD". In the new window I press the options arrow. When I click on the list of burning devices and select a different one Rhythmbox disappears from the desktop.

There is no music being played while doing that.

My burners are "PLEXTOR CDR" and "_NEC DVD_RW".

Comment from upstream:

I'm still not sure how this is happening. Could someone who can reproduce this
and has Rhythmbox debug symbols installed, try seeing what the following prints
out when entered into gdb after it stops with the crash? Thanks


To do this, enter the following in a terminal:

gdb rhythmbox
    (make it crash, by changing drives when burning)
up 5
