Thanks for helping improve Xubuntu and Xfce. This has been reported to the upstream developers. Unfortunately, there probably won't be a quick fix for this, as indicated by the developers at Xfce:

Xfmedia is unmaintained. Patches welcome.

Running xfmedia as root doesn't cause segmentation fault. I had exactly the same problem when i updated from hardy to intrepid.
