Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu Raring Ringtail (development branch)
Release: 13.04
Version: 6.8.1daily13.01.11-0ubuntu1

What you expected to happen:
When opening the music lens in Dash and clicking on an album, I expect that a music player (Rhythmbox) will be started and that it then starts playing the selected album.

What happened instead:
Rhythmbox was started but the album did not start playing nor got the first song of the album get selected in Rhythmbox, so that manually clicking the play button wouldn't start playing the right song.

The only way to bypass this is to have Rhythmbox running with a song playing. But I hope someone could take some attention to this.

Indeed, opening the Dash again and selecting the item again triggers playback. So the issue seems to be that when Rhythmbox gets started by the dash, it does not immediately receive the item selection as well.
