[Rhythmbox-devel] Rhythmbox doesn't play and other problems


I am having problems with sound and the rhythmbox player. 
Unfortunately, the problems are not completely repeatable.  I am running
debian lenny with KDE.  I seem to have no problem with players based on

There are a bunch of problems.
 1) The rhythmbox GUI doesn't open unless it is started twice.  This
happens every time.
 2) When I play an mp3, there is no sound.  The progress bar (usually)
moves, but no sound.     Skype works so I have sound - rhythmbox just
won't make any.  BTW, I tried an ogg file and that wouldn't play in
rhythmbox either.
 3) If I have started and paused an attempted playback - so the
rhythmbox GUI shows pause - and I cover the GUI and then try to
redisplay, sometimes the GUI is frozen, i.e. the display does not refresh.
 4) If I pause rhythmbox and try to start it again, it frequently crashes.

This seems like something involving threads - I do have a dual core CPU
and wonder if this is causing some problem; however, I clearly have no
idea what is happening or how to proceed.

I'm not sure what sort of debugging output to include.  I've included
some things I've seen in previous sound related messages.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.
