[Bug 66810] Likes to crash shortly after startup

Public bug reported:

Package: rhythmbox
Version: 0.9.6-0ubuntu4
Severity: important

Rhythmbox, more often than not, crashes a few seconds after startup.
Sometimes it takes more than ten starts of rhythmbox until it manages
to play a song without crashing.  (If it manages to stay up for more
than a minute than it usally works for hours without problems).

All crashes I saw under gdb had this stacktrace:
