  Search for suitable plugin dialog useless

Status in “banshee” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gnome-media

  I play my music with banshee, and it plays everything fine.  But every
  once in a while Ubuntu brings up a dialog box titled "Search for
  suitable plugin?", which claims that it can't play something.  If I
  try to search for a plugin, it has never yet been able to find

  What's really annoying is that if I click "cancel", Banshee skips the
  currently playing track.  Apparently the dialog box is too stupid to
  realise that the media player might have moved on since it wasted all
  that time searching for a non-existent plugin.

  The other really frustrating thing about this dialog is that it
  doesn't provide any information about which file it's talking about.
  It just says "this file", as if I manually clicked on the track.

  And finally, when it fails to find a plugin to play the file, it
  doesn't record that fact anywhere and goes through the same sequence
  the next time it hits a file it doesn't understand.

  I have no idea which package this bug belongs to.  It's not banshee,
  since I can quit banshee entirely and the dialog box doesn't go away.
  It must be somewhere down in the tangled mess that is the Gnome
  multimedia system.
