Hey all,

lately we've seen an enormous amount of reports about Amarok crashing
due to scripts. As we cannot reproduce the problems and it only seems
to happen with packaged versions of Amarok 2, we're wondering if there
could be a packaging problem with the QtScript bindings.

The huge problem with this is that Amarok will crash right on startup,
once the user has installed a script. So we are pretty worried about
this, and we have a lot of disgruntled users complaining in our forum.

As far as I can tell, mostly Ubuntu seems to be affected by this, but
some reports were also from SUSE users.

Here's our own bug report for this:
