Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: amarok

Mark Kretschmann, a core developer of Amarok, suggested that many of the
bugs we receive on launchpad for the collectionscanner crashing can be
fixed with a recompile:

"""The scanner crashes sometimes on Ubuntu, because the package was
compiled with Stack Smashing Protection. This option is apparently known
to be a little trigger happy or buggy.

At any rate, the Stack Smashing Protection sometimes aborts the scanner. The solution is to rebuild Amarok without SSP (which is enabled by default in Ubuntu's GCC)."""

I suggest that this change be made in hopes of reducing the number of bugs we receive for this problem.
