This looks like libgpod is having problems with your ipod. Stack
traces from these might help; run rhythmbox under gdb with '-D
something' as arguments and it'll break any time it prints a warning
or critical message.

Sure, of course those need to be fixed. My intent is to indicate which

When I was working on this code, I could sync to a filesystem I had
told rhythmbox to treat as an ipod. I don't actually have an ipod.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you want some more realtime
help looking into it, drop by #rhythmbox on
