Simon - generally LP isn't for support but seeing as how convoluted this
report became a short explain.
The fix in 12.04 with RB 2.96 is just to provide 2 new presets to
override the default gnome ones which produced low quality encodes for
.mp3 & .ogg

You can see them in /usr/share/gstreamer-0.10/presets & if desired can
adjust using available gstreamer options
Or you can re-create the above locally in your home folder
(~/.gstreamer-0.10/presets/GstLameMP3Enc.prs ,
~/.gstreamer-0.10/presets/GstVorbisEnc.prs & edit the .prs as desired
using available gstreamer options as seen in gst-inspect lamemp3enc ,
gst-inspect vorbisenc

The fix for 12.10, RB 2.97 _additionally_ added a gui 'Custom Settings'
that will create ~/.gstreamer-0.10/presets/* & adjust the quality option
as specified thru the gui
