** Changed in: banshee (Ubuntu Precise)
       Status: In Progress => Fix Released

You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu
CLI/Mono Uploaders, which is subscribed to banshee in Ubuntu.

  When http_proxy is unreachable, banshee spins 200% cpu (and may lock
  entire system if unlucky, requiring unclean reboot)

Status in Banshee Music Player:
  Fix Released
Status in “banshee” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in “banshee” source package in Oneiric:
  Fix Committed
Status in “banshee” source package in Precise:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  System Settings -> Network -> Network proxy
  You can set e.g. "localhost", port "9090", assuming you're not running any service on that port.

  Now run Banshee, and attempt to use the Online Media->Internet

  Banshee will stop responding to any input, and go into an infinite
  loop (on at least two different threads).

  It is possible to reproduce situations where Banshee will hang while a
  context menu is open.  It is then not possible to switch to a
  different application.  An inexperienced user would be forced to hard-
  reboot the machine, which could cause data loss.
