I just downloaded, compiled and started using on Debian/unstable.

It compiled fine after hitting it about the head a bit: configure was 
looking for gstreamer-libs-0.6 but the Debian package installs the 
pkgconf file "gstreamer-0.6.pc". I kluged a fix by symlinking 
"gstreamer-libs-0.6.pc" to "gstreamer-0.6.pc" in /usr/lib/pkgconfig. I 
guess the debian package needs to be fixed? I compiled against the usual 
stuff (including ogg and vorbis) as well as XOSD, but not lirc.

It seems to be playing oggs and radio fine - although I will only be 
using it to listen to oggs for the most part.

The only complaints are that it seems to be hogging a *lot* of CPU - 
even when not playing, and it seems to be leaking memory on a per-track 
basis. At the start of the track, it is using 16M/8M RSS/shared, after 
playing a three and a half minute track it gets up to around 22M/14M. 
When a track finishes and the next starts, memory usgae drops back down 
to 16M/8M.

I'll be hammering it for you. I typically use RB for 4+ hours per day, 
and because 0.4 and 0.4.1 rarely crashed on me, it typically has had an 
uptime of weeks. So I'll let you know if I run into any further 
problems. Let me know if you want more details about the stuff above.
