Bug description:
Binary package hint: banshee

I added this stream: http://ktru.org/audiometa/listen3.m3u to banshee.  At first I thought that banshee internet radio wasn't working.  I tried all the other streaming urls at http://ktru.org/ (they have 3 mp3 streams, 2 AAC, 1 real audio, 1 wma), and none of them worked.  They had, however, been working when I'd previously been using rhythmbox.  I verified they were still working in rhythmbox.  I didn't see anything relevant in the banshee log...so I tried running banshee from the command line.  lo-and-behold, the radio worked.  I changed the music-applet to use the banshee-1 command instead of DBus...still didn't work.  I also tried banshee command, still no love.  So, it works from the command line, works from the Applications menu.  I then went to the music-applet page, saw that it's being replaced with panflute.  I installed panflute...still had the same issue.  I suspect there's something about how Banshee reports to the applets when it starts a stream which causes Banshee to end up failing to play the stream.  All the Banshee tells me is "unspecified error".  The work around, of course, is to not use the music applet or panflute to run banshee.  However, the player should probably be able to play the streams regardless of how it was invoked.  Hence the bug-report.
