Yeah, a backtrace would be nice, but it doesn't produce a core file, and
I don't know how to make it do so.

This is the output of rhythmbox -d:
[info_available_cb] rb-shell-player.c:1423 (00:36:13): info:

gst-launch-ext works fine with these files, i can't seem to play any
file from the hd with rb... be it ogg or mp3.

still not working for me...

heres the output of rhythmbox -d

after it loads fine until it finds a directory with
.nautilus-metafile.xml and then it keeps giving this error and never
moves on.

True, we need a better wording for this I think... perhaps "Load
Library" or "Add Songs" if you specified a directory and "Start
Rhythmbox" if you selected to skip it.

I also don't think its clear that close should actually start rhythmbox

Another thing that might be nice is to add an entry to the help menu
that is "Run first time assistant" or something like that that would
launch the starting druid.

Thanks for all the hard work on rb lately.
