Test case is pretty simple:  try to add
'' as an iradio station.  It
appears, sits there for a while, then disappears.

That isn't the URL that tells you to use, but there are a
few streams around that do use the '/listen.pls' from the shoutcast/icecast

I'm using gnome-vfs 2.10.1 (Debian package from experimental) with the
neon HTTP backend.

Sort of.  It doesn't work with playbin at the moment, but it (or a
variation of it) should eventually.

Some day I'll learn to actually check for these things..

Fair enough.

I can reproduce it on a 3GHz P4 with around 10000 songs in rhythmdb.
It's entirely subjective, but I find the search box is much easier to

It was needed for patch-45 (which doesn't seem to be in Christophe's
patch pile), which fixed #304519.  It's useful on its own, as it fixes

Is this the one where you get some strange ORBit-related messages on
stdout?  Right on cue, it just happened again:

** ERROR **: file poa.c: line 1025 (ORBit_POA_activate_object_T): assertion failed: ((poa->life_flags & ORBit_LifeF_DeactivateDo) == 0)
