Hi again Darin,

I've CC'd the mailing list again.

OK - we could see from the warnings that something about the
"Snow-Apple" theme was upsetting rhythmbox.  Maybe going back to the
default theme has helped a little, but it hasn't solved the problem.
It was worth a try though.

The error you reported last time was the most interesting bit:

This error is in the database bit of rhythmbox (used to keep track of
all the songs etc).  You can view the current version of this file
online if you're interested:

I think something is going wrong trying to remove an entry from the
database.  Given this, and that you mentioned using podcasts when it
crashed, maybe it's something to do with the podcasts?  If you stop
using podcasts does RB stop crashing?

Other than that, I'm out of ideas (but I'm just another RB user, not
one of the developers).

Good luck,
