I agree that it's not ideal.  My suggestion was just meant to be a
hack.  Upgrading configuration between releases shouldn't be a problem
in the sense that there are no known problems that are anticipated so
there should be no reason to prompt the user.  The problem is this
case is not that the database has problems, but there are problems in
the application (probably because it's an older version of rhythmbox
like 0.9.4 or 0.9.5 and it's fixed in the later releases).

Unfortunately bugs happen like this happen and distributors ship old
versions of applications that have been fixed in the released version
or in CVS.
