And it's probably marking them as error.

On Breezy, GStreamer 0.8 used the gstreamer-mad plugin to play MP3
files. GStreamer 0.10 (used on Dapper) uses a different name scheme
(and that's why it broke -- it didn't upgrade the plugins).

You need to install the package gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly (ugly
because there are ugly patents on it).

After that, everything should be ok.
