[Dapper] Rhythmbox, Gstreamer and mp3 radio meta data

Hi all!

I've had an annoyance with rhythmbox for quite some time now. The
problem is that it doesn't show the meta data for the mp3-streams (eg.
Artist, Song name).

I know there was a change between Gstreamer 0.8 and Gstreamer 0.10 to
setting iradio-mode to false, but I'm not sure if that's the reason the
metadata won't show up.

Am I the only one with this problem, or is this something which will be
fixed towards the release of Dapper?

The version of Rhythmbox I'm running is, and it's
linked to these gstreamer-libraries;

~$ ldd /usr/bin/rhythmbox|grep gst

libgstbase-0.10.so.0 => /usr/lib/libgstbase-0.10.so.0 (0xb7b81000)
libgstreamer-0.10.so.0 => /usr/lib/libgstreamer-0.10.so.0 (0xb7af5000)

The installed version of these are 0.10.4-ubuntu1
