podcast crashes amarok

Fix Released

Bug Description

Binary package hint: amarok

One of the podcasts at http://www.touchmusic.org.uk/TouchPod/podcast.xml crashes amarok. The podcast in question is Touch Radio 25. The other episodes I have tried seem to work fine. What happens with #25 is that I get a few hundred ms of sound and then amarok freezes for a little while before evaporating from the desktop altogether.

I don't know whether or not the audio file in question is corrupt, but obviously amarok shouldn't crash even if it is.

Running Amarok 1.4.5 with kde 3.5.6 (Kubuntu Feisty)

After adding the podcast, trying to play ep#25
1) if I try to play it by streaming then Amarok crashes (buffering messages goes from 1% to 100%)
2) if downloaded ep#25 then play it , Amarok played it fine.
