This is probably a bug in rhythmbox. HAL reports "audio/flac" as a
supported type, but we probably recognise FLAC files as "audio/x-flac"
by the looks of things (output from "gst-typefind-0.10 file.flac"
would confirm this). If this is the case, we'll need to translate
between the two in the transcoding code somewhere.

I'll report this on b.g.o then?
